Boy and Girl Scout Fundraising Ideas

Written by Michele Wheat

Boy Scouts are active kids, so if you are looking for fun Cub Scout fundraising ideas, consider a sponsorship event! Your troop can find pledges and supporters the traditional way, with personal sign-up sheets, or you could use a crowdfunding site to expand your reach. Sometimes, crowdfunding sites offer rewards for donations or pledges that reach certain benchmarks. Our silicone wristbands can serve as a great reward. Print out a message that thanks your sponsors for support of your troop! Our bands are highly customizable, so you can make your message personal. Specific Cub Scout fundraising ideas that people could sponsor include:

  • Walkathons
  • Sponsored swims
  • Bowl-a-thons
  • Read-a-thons
  • Sponsored hikes
  • Sponsored baseball tournaments

But maybe sponsorship doesn't quite fit your troop and you need some different Boy Scout fundraising ideas. Some of the best fundraisers are created when you think outside the box! You troop can try out:

  • An Olympic or field day event
  • Go-cart racing
  • Donation boxes
  • A recycling drive

These events are great for Girl Scouts as well. Use our wristbands to help spread awareness for your event! The scouts will love passing them out to their friends at school.

Girl Scout Fundraising Ideas

Girl Scouts can take advantage of the same sponsorship fundraising ideas. But they are best known for their famous cookie sales! However, cookie season is only in the spring, and the troop will still need ways to raise money during the rest of the year. Your scouts can put their stellar sales skills to work by selling other types of goods. The list can include:

Your fundraising efforts will get your scouts to that big event that they've been waiting for. And what better way to commemorate that experience than with some customized wristbands? You can print the camp name and year on them. Or make some personalized troop bracelets that the scouts can enjoy for years! The silicone bands are stretchy and waterproof, so there's no need to worry about ruining wristbands when the scouts take a swim at the camp's lake or pool.

Many of our wristbands are available at bulk discount pricing. The silicone bands are non-toxic and can fit most wrists, and the durable design is meant to withstand years of wear and tear. If you need your order fast, same-day shipping is available for some products. Contact our customer service team if you have questions about how to use our bands for your scout troop's next fundraiser. We look forward to helping you!
