Fundraising

Because BSA registration fees and dues do not fully cover the costs of Scouting, individual units, Powhatan District and our local Scout Council offer fundraisers to keep programs affordable for all.  Check out opportunities for raising money for your adventures, keeping our camps and facilities in good shape, and enabling us to offer training plus challenging and fun activities for Scouts of all ages!

Popcorn Sales

This is an easy and productive fundraiser for units!  Scout take and deliver orders, and units get a share of the profits.  Powhatan District takes care of logistics, procuring the popcorn and other treats. Scouts with needing financial assistance can earn extra dollars in camp scholarships.  Learn more by visiting our popcorn page.

Camp Cards

The Camp Card fundraiser is designed to help units and Scouts earn their way to Camp this summer! Units participating in the 2019 program will earn 50% commission, ($2.50) on each $5 Camp Card, and offers a RISK FREE way to raise funds. This year’s sale runs from February 1st to May 15th. Sign-ups will begin November 1st. To learn more, and sign up, please go to www.NCACBSA.org/campcard.  Cards will be distributed at the February Roundtable for unit leaders. Have questions? Send an email to CampCard@NCACBSA.org.
