Thank you everyone for participating in the 2020 Trail’s End Popcorn Fundraiser!

Units can still join The Fundraiser That Can Fund Your Scouting Adventures All Year! Online sales will continue year round!

Does your unit need to earn funds for events and activities? Are you a new unit looking for ideas on how to earn funds?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then please contact us and we will show you how your unit can earn enough money in one fundraiser to support your Scouting adventures for the entire year!

We’ve got a way so simple, you don’t even need to touch the product to earn money for your unit.

Door hangers are still available for 2021!  Once you have committed to the sale, let us know how many door hangers you would like.  We will ship them to your unit popcorn kernel.

To help you further reach your goal, custom door hangers have been created just for your Scouts. Scouts should knock on a neighbors door and tell them who they are and that they are raising money to support their Scouting adventures. Hand them the door hanger (or leave it on their door) with all of the Scouts information on how they can place an order thru On-line Direct or they can place an order using their Trail’s End App.

We hope that this will help your sale grow.

Do you have questions about your sale?  Trail’s End has the answers.

What is the Annual Popcorn Sale:

Each fall, Scouts hit the streets selling popcorn in front of grocery stores, in their neighborhood and to friends and family as part of our Annual Popcorn Sale. This program is a Council administered fundraiser designed to engage Scouts in the process of raising the funds that will support their unit’s program needs for the entire year. It also gives Scouts pride knowing they earned their own way!

Methods of Selling

73% of the proceeds from Popcorn sales stay within the local council.  The individual unit can earn between 30%-35% of the retail value of the popcorn for every bag sold.

  • Show and Sell
    This sale is designed to sell popcorn that your unit popcorn kernel signs out and picks up at a council pickup location. Then, at a location of your choice, you and the Scouts from your unit sell the popcorn directly to the public.
  • Show and Deliver:
    This is the best way to increase popcorn sales. The Scouts in your unit take an order form and product door to door. The Scout sells the product, delivers the product, and collects the money all in one trip.
  • Online Sale:
    Your Scout can sell online to help earn his or her own way and fund their Scouting adventures.  On-line sales earns 35% directly back to your unit.  Your unit must have an account set up.  Please email and we will be happy to set one up for you.
  • Military Sale:
    Trail’s End partners with Soldiers’ Angels to deploy all military popcorn sales to various bases, VA hospitals, and National Guard units.
