Unlike the Girl Scouts who all depend on cookie sales to raise money, Boy Scout fundraising options are chosen by each particular troop. Having that choice can be good or bad. Since there are lots of Cub Scout Fundraising ideas and Boy Scout fundraising ideas to choose from we have identified the best products we think will work good for scouting organizations on listed them on the right side of this page (bottom if you are viewing our mobile version).

As is always the case, a successful Boy Scout fund raising campaign begins with clearly verbalizing the purpose of the fundraiser. The kids will gladly work hard to pay for scout camp or equipment to help with merit badges. If you simply say we are hold a fundraiser to raise money to use for the troop the results might not be as high as you would like.

So What Are the Best Boy Scout Fundraisers?

Boy Scouts

Along the side of this page we have identified 8 different products that you should definitely consider for your troop. As you can see all of them are relevant to the scouting world.

The main consideration for your group will be whether your troop or one of the parents has the money to purchase a product for your scouts to sell. If you can afford to purchase items like candy or lollipops you will find them easy to sell especially to scouts wearing their uniforms.

You might get hold of your local Wal Mart or any other busy retailer in your town and ask if they would allow you to set up tables near their entry way.

No Upfront Cost Scout Fundraisers

No Upfront Cost Boy Scout Fundraisers

If you don't have the money to purchase products that you can have on hand to sell your troop can try one of the many different brochure fundraisers we offer. They are great for groups that don't have money to start a fundraiser. One of the other benefits of a brochure sale is that you'll only order the products your troop has pre sold so there's no excess inventory at the end of your sale.

There are lots of choices that make a ton of sense for scouts such as flower bulbs or recycleable bags. If you want to browse all of our no upfront cost fundraisers click here.

Top 3 Boy Scout Fundraising Ideas

Each BSA unit makes their own fundraising decisions. Many participate in popcorn sales, but the most troops choose their own fundraiser. We've seen lots of different ideas like poinsettas, carwashes, flags, and even mulch.

But we believe you will find the following 3 ideas perfect for your troop.

Top 3 Scout Fundraisers

1. Cookie Dough Fundraiser: Cookie dough became a great Boy Scout fundraiser when minimums were reduced making it possible for troops to use this program. Cookie dough is such a natural fundraising product so we suggest you consider any of the four no cost options in our cookie dough section.

2. Snackin in the USA: This program works well for any group. In fact more and more scouting groups are choosing it. Your scouts will sell 24 extremely popular bags of snack foods for $7. You'll make 50% profit and since there is no minimum smaller groups can use this option.

3. Magic Melts Fundraiser: Magic Melts have become one of our top fundraisers overall so we want to make sure all scout groups consider it. The melts are highly scented fragrance bars that you use in candle warmers instead of burning candles. There are a few national brands that are extremely popular. We feel like our Magic Melts are better than those products as far as quality is concerned but our price is wonderful. You'll sell a package of melts for $4 and still make 50% profit. There's no minimum and you can qualify for free shipping if you sell 150 or more packages.
