UPDATE: New online campaign from April 15 to July 15, 2020

We are excited to provide all units with a new digital platform that will be used during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will allow units to participate in raising funding for all unit needs while maintaining safety protocol for all Scouts. Units will receive a 60% commission for all sales. We need all units to register through the link below so they can receive their code for purchasers to use online to capture unit sales. Read the full letter from our council Adventure Card chair.

In the spring, the Cradle of Liberty Council provides units a fundraising opportunity through the Adventure Card Program. The Adventure Card is a discount card to local businesses that Scout and Exploring units sell to help raise money to attend summer camp and other programs. To date, Scouting units in Cradle of Liberty earned close to $670,000 for these purposes!

The Adventure Card Fundraiser Features:

– Great Value: Cards sell for only $5 and have a value of more than $125 with multiple single-use and multi-use deals!

– Minimal Risk & Great Return for Units: Your unit will receive a 60% commission on each card sold online.

– Great Time to Sell: Program runs from mid-April until mid-July.

– Provides Experience: Scouts can learn sales, money management, planning, and goal-setting.

Enables units to ensure all Scouts & Explorers have the opportunity to attend camp and participate in other great activities!

“Strive For 25”

For every 25 Adventure Cards an individual youth member sells, he or she will be automatically entered into one of the weekly drawings for $25 Amazon gift cards. Drawings are held on Thursdays and will have five winners each. All entries from the weekly drawings will then be put into a Super Drawing at the end of the sale for even larger prizes.

 

Entries will be made automatically based on online sales data.

 

The first 2020 drawing will be held on April 30 and the last will be on June 25.
