Popcorn Fundraising

Beginning in 1981 with just seven Scout councils, Trail’s End has grown to serve more than 285 councils today. The Trail’s End fund-raising program is exclusive to Scouting, and it provides all that a Scout Packs and Troops may need, from planning and budgeting guidelines to training programs for Scouts and Leaders, to the highest quality products available.

The mission of Trail’s End is to help Units raise the needed funds by which they can expand programs and activities for their Scouts.  Seventy percent of the funds generated from the sale of popcorn are earned by units and the local council to support local Scouting in the community.
