Annual Popcorn Sale

Trail’s End Popcorn

The Popcorn Product Sale is one of the Council’s most important fundraisers in 2022. We are excited to begin this year with a strong focus on promoting membership, as well as encouraging our units to do their best! Our aim in the Moraine Trails Council is to help our units succeed and keep membership cost down for all Scouts. Your continued support and hard work for your unit’s fundraising efforts will help fund the multitude of activities available through Scouting. 

The Council portion of the sale is approximately 25-28% after the Council incurs costs for logistics, product, promotion, staff time, etc. For many years, almost a decade, the unit average commission has been 35%. The Council leadership wants the local unit to have the lions share and be financially solvent, but the Council portion also supports the local unit through member data storage and entering, insurance coverage of many types, membership campaigns, program development and delivery, and facilities like our camps for trainings, program, and unit camping.
