Popcorn Fundraiser Info

Sales Goal and Opt Out:

Pack 82’s has a budget of $320 per scout for the 2023-2024 year. This year, we are fortunate to have enough excess funds to provide an $105 discount to every scout. The remaining amount will be raised by participating in the Popcorn Fundraiser or paying the Opt-Out fee. Below are the goals for this year.

Sales Goal is $625 per scout.

The Opt-Out is $200 per scout. NOTE: If you sell popcorn, but do not meet the sales goal, the opt-out will be reduced on a sliding scale based on how much popcorn was sold.

How much does Cub Scouts Cost?

One-Time Registration Fee: $160. This money goes directly to the Boy Scouts of America and is due when you complete the registration.

Pack Fundraiser: The Pack will conduct a Popcorn Fundraiser starting in September to raise money to cover the expenses associated with our local Scouting Program. This is an important part of our program, because we use this as an opportunity to teach our boys about working hard to earn money to pay for the things they enjoy doing (i.e. Scouting). For the 2023-2024 year, each scout’s Fundraiser Sales Goal is $625. If you are unable to participate in the fundraiser, you can choose to pay an Opt-Out fee of $200. For Scouts that participate in the fundraiser, but do not meet the Sales Goal, the Opt-Out fee will be reduced based on the amount of popcorn the individual sold.

Uniform and Book Costs: The last expense is the uniform and the book. This cost will vary, but is generally between $50 and $100. The book is about $25. Everything can be purchased at the Scout Shop in Little Rock (3220 Cantrell Rd, Little Rock, AR 72202). eBay is also a good location for purchasing Scout Uniforms at a reduced rate. Uniforms need to be purchased before our Pinewood Derby race in January.
