Coffee Fundraiser 2022

The Greater St. Louis Area Council is excited to be offering a new fundraising program! Coffee sales can generate enough income to financially support your Scouting program for the entire year! Money from coffee can be used to cover the cost of camporees, pinewood derby races, field trips, equipment, badges and advancement, and summer camp.

Why Sell?

Coffee sales can generate enough income to financially support your Scouting Program for the entire year!

Some of the great benefits of selling coffee include:

  • There is NO up-front cost to your unit.
  • Units pay for only the product they sell.
  • Sales support local Scouting.
  • A built-in prize program encourages Scouts to sell.
  • Coffee sales teach Scouts the responsibility and value of earning their own way.
  • Coffee is easy to sell.
  • Scouts can earn free camping at a Greater St. Louis Area Council camp of their choice!
