Funds that go into the Troop General Fund over the course of the year are tagged to the individual scout to track each scout's $125 Yearly Contribution Goal.  Thank you to the scouts who exceed that goal, this is how we fund the Troop.  Scouts who do not meet the Yearly Contribution Goal will be sent notice and will be expected to pay the difference to the Troop Treasurer by December 1st.

Fundraising Sales Policy


Starting January 1, 2014 the troop will be requiring the following:
1. A scout must sell enough products to equal $125 profit to the troop. If he does not meet this goal by December 31st, he will be billed for the remainder.
2. If a scout chooses not to participate in any product sales he can donate $125 to the troop in lieu of selling.

Reasons a scout should participate:
a. A scout learns about salesmanship, developing communication skills, and confidence
b. The scout takes ownership in his troop.
c. He learns about paying his own way, and reduces the financial burden on his family when he wants to go on a campout.
d. A scout actively supports his troop, he’s giving back. This is the scouting way.

Expenses that are covered:

a. Insurance for the trailer
b. Repairs and signage for the trailer
c. All camping supplies- which includes tents, cookware, stoves, Dutch ovens, water containers, tables, high adventure gear, canoes, paper products, charcoal, etc
d. Troop events such as Court of Honors, celebrations, Webelos and Cub scout outings
e. All campouts and outdoor activities require at least 1 adult leader, usually 2, to be present. The troop pays for their registration costs. Fundraising helps cover in part or all of this expense.
f. Annual re-charter cost, Boys Life, merit badges, rank patches.

Historically, Troop 49 has never asked a scout or his family to pay a "joining" cost. Many other troops do this to help cover registration fees and the scouts' part of troop expenses. The burden of covering set expenses in our troop has always been covered by scouts participating in fundraising events. It is critical that scouts not only sell but sell enough to cover their costs within the troop. When the scouts sell they are reinforcing the scout spirit of teamwork, family, and helping other people at all times.

Racine Kringle Sale



Thank you to all of the Scouts who participated in the Troop’s spring fundraiser!  We had 35 scouts that were involved in the fundraiser this year.  Total sales for the fundraiser was $9325 with the troop receiving $3,485 as profit!  The profit will be divided into funds for the troop as well as to individual scout’s accounts.  In addition, the troop received a $75 donation from Racine Kringles.  


Special recognition goes to the top three sellers:  Noah Meissner with $972 in sales, Zach Roth with $946.50 in sales and Hunter Hollenbeck with $889.50 in sales.  


Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who assisted in tallying order forms, unloading the truck, sorting product and compiling the orders - without you, this would have been a crazy time.  Thank you to every scout who participated - your hard work made this fundraiser a “Sweet Success”!!
