Fundraising

Why Do We Fundraise?

Troop 61 provides scouts with the opportunity to contribute to the cost of their scouting activities through annual fundraising campaigns.  These campaigns not only allow the individual scout to earn funds toward his scouting activities but is also a way for the scout to contribute financially to the overall troop.  The money generated from fundraising efforts allows the troop to purchase new equipment and replace worn existing gear.  Fundraising campaigns also allow the scouts to hone their people skills through practiced salesmanship.

We’re excited to be selling Giving Bean Coffee and Artisan Teas.  Giving Bean is a gourmet coffee roaster providing a variety of freshly roasted whole bean and ground coffees, fine tea, gourmet cocoa, chai, and biscotti.
