Money and Fund Raising


Back to Frequently Asked Questions

Cub Scouts is a nonprofit organization. Most of our activities and supplies are provided by the pack. We try to keep our costs down and reduce extra expenses for you, the parent. However, as with most extracurricular activities, there are some additional costs during the year. We will do our best to keep you informed of the costs ahead of time.


In order to reduce expenses the pack has one main fund raiser and a secondary fund raiser if needed (see below). We also provide a “scout account” for each boy. These accounts are monitored by our treasurer.


Popcorn Sales: This sale is at the beginning of the year. This is the only fund-raiser in which profits go directly to the Pack. The pack uses the profits to cover scholarships, extra pack expenses and support for other programs throughout the year-like our spring celebration, the Blue and Gold banquet.

Arrow of Light

Spring Fund-raising sale: In the past the scouts have sold candy bars & discount cards. The profits from this sale go directly into the Scout’s account. Money raised can be used toward dues, camp, or uniform expenses.
