How do I allocate my order to a specific Group/Section/Committee?

At checkout, customers can select their preferred Group/Section/Committee from a drop-down menu.  Please ensure the correct name has been selected as some Groups/Sections/Committees share similar names.  *Note: this is only available to those Groups who have previously registered by completing the Registration Form found at Registration Form - Popcorn .

What if I cannot find my preferred Group on the list?

This means that your preferred Group/Section/Committee did not choose to participate in the fundraiser or that they have not yet registered (see question above).

How do I select a specific youth’s name that I wish to credit my order to?

At checkout, customers can add the youth’s first and last name to their order by filling out the required field.

No, you do not.  You can select the “I do not want to choose a Scout Group” button and your order will be credited to Scouts Canada National.

How do I view the Dashboard to follow my Group/Section/Committee’s sales?

What percentage of the revenue goes to Groups/Sections/Committees and to Scouts Canada?

Groups/Sections/Committees will receive 45% of the retail price as profit.  In addition, net profits will go to the No One Left Behind (NOLB) campaign, which provides children and youth from low-income families with the opportunity to participate in Scouting.
