USEFUL RESOURCES


    

COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP PAYOUT PROGRAM

     

Trails End Popcorn Scholarships

Trail's End (TE) has announced that they are phasing out the scholarship program and enhancing TE Rewards.

Why are we phasing out scholarship and enhancing
TE Rewards?

•    Only 1 out of 5 eligible Scouts ($2500+ in sales) actually enrolls in the scholarship and collects their scholarship funds. This utilization is too low.
 
•    TE Rewards has already released gift cards for over 96% of Scouts and the number increases daily. With TE Rewards, Scouts get what they earn.

•    Scouts who claim their scholarship funds wait an average of 10 years, whereas with TE Rewards all Scouts claim their gift cards immediately.

•    TE Rewards offers Scout families with more flexibility, as gift cards can be used to purchase Scout prizes or everyday items, or even be converted to cash and saved in a private scholarship account. 

What do I need to know regarding these changes?

•    Scouts enrolled in the scholarship by March 31, 2020, can continue to submit scholarship forms and their account will be credited 4% of their sales for the popcorn fundraiser in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Sales in later years will not be credited to the scholarship program. Sales after December 31, 2022, will not be eligible for credits to a Scout’s scholarship account.

•    There will be no new Scout enrollments into the scholarship program after March 31, 2020.

•    TE will continue to pay out existing scholarship funds to eligible recipients under the current scholarship program.

•    Scholarship changes were decided by TE, not your local council.

•    TE will be notifying Scouts who sold $2,500+ in 2019, as well as active Scouts enrolled in the scholarship program.

To check on current Trails End Popcorn Scholarships, please email Trails End at:

 scholarship@trails-end.com to request your scholarship account statement.

For over 35 years, Trail's End has been in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America to help local Scout units (Packs, Troops, Crews, Posts or Ships) and their Councils raise the money needed to fund programs and activities throughout the year. Scouts and their families are responsible for raising money for their units, so purchases directly help Scouts earn the funding needed to participate in Scouting adventures. As we’ve seen over the past three decades, adventures in Scouting build character and leadership, and create memories that last a lifetime.
