Unit Leaders and Scout Families,

As a direct response to the increase in the cost of Scouting this year, and in response to the disruption caused by the current economic shutdown, The Southeast Louisiana Council is providing an opportunity for Units and individual Scout families to participate in a Spring fundraiser. Scouting’s “Good Turn” Discount App is a $20 digital membership to hundreds of local and online retailers with thousands more across the country. The membership is downloaded on an app and is valid for one year from the date of purchase.

How do I sell, and what does my Scout make on each membership?

This fundraiser is being provided at no up-front cost to Units or Scouts. Each membership will be sold for $20 with 65% coming back to Scouting. Total profit on each membership is $13, Scouts will receive $8 to go towards personal Scouting costs. Normally $5 returns to support Scouting at the Council Level but this year we are donating all of our revenue to support the community and we hope that it will help add value to what our Scouts are asking.

Card Sale - $20

Scout Profit - $8

United Way Covid-19 Relief Fund: $5

The fundraiser is 100% online. Units can organize to participate, or families can sell individually. Units who participate can have a single check routed to them at the end of the sale by designating a unit leader contact and an address to mail the check. Families who are in a unit not participating together will be contacted individually to receive payment.

 

The sale will run from April 15th through June 1st. Checks are expected to be distributed in July (Funds are distributed by the company quarterly).
