Nuts for Scouting

2022 SPRING NUTS FOR SCOUTING SALE

Purpose

To give local units a spring fundraiser to help scouts earn their way to summer camp. The local unit uses most of the commission to benefit the Scout. A benefit of the Nuts for Scouting sales is that there is no money up front and NO RISK to the local unit. The Nuts of Scouting sale is a very important part of the Council Fair Share Plan that was introduced. This sale will help your unit and Council become fiscally sustainable.

Cost

The unit only orders what it needs; individual container orders only, no full case orders. The unit should collect the money upfront and then pay for their order at the time the order is due.

Type of Sale

  1. Take order: Scouts take orders on their sheet and turn it in to the local unit. The Council provides the order forms.  Order forms can be downloaded below or at the Council Service Center. Scouts collect the money up front and submit the money with their order.
  2. Online ordering:  Scouts can send a request to sell via email or text and ask the customer to order Nuts online.  The customer will need the Council name (“Bucktail Council”), Unit number (“Pack” or “Troop” “XX”, where “XX” is the unit number).  Download the Nuts for Scouting Online Ordering Instructions here.

Commission

The unit commission is 40%. The local council also makes a modest amount of money that will be designated to provide quality Scouting programs.
