Why do we have a fundraiser?
The fundraiser promotes the opportunity for all the scouts and their families in Troop 75 to work as a team to raise funds to pay for camping equipment, badges, patches, maintain our trailer, and other Troop expenses. Troop goal for 2021 is to raise $10,000 and help feed 100+ local first responders.Scout sales goal is $200.

What is the fundraiser?
The only required fundraiser for the year for Troop 75 will be the Pancake Breakfast which will take place on Saturday, September 11, 2021 from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Naperville. Scouts need to be there from either: (i) 6 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. or (ii) 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 pm to set up, help serve breakfast and clean up.

How will the fundraiser be successful?
The fundraiser will be successful if we receive participation from each scout and his family in selling tickets and working at the pancake breakfast.

Scout Expectations – Minimum Requirements
Based on information from the past eight years of Pancake Breakfast ticket sales and donations, the troop should achieve its goal when each scout participates as follows:

Tier 1: Total sales of $199 or less

  • Scout must participate/work two sales sessions of which one must be a Saturday sales session.
  • Scout must work half the day of the Pancake Breakfast, September 11 from (i) 6:00 am – 9:30 am or (ii) 9:30 am – noon.

Tier 2: Total sales of $200 or more

  • Scout must work half the day of the Pancake Breakfast, September 11 from (i) 6:00 am – 9:30 am or (ii) 9:30 am – noon.

Sales Sessions Types

  • FF = Friends & Family – Each $50 increment in ticket sales to friends, family, teachers, neighbors, etc. counts as one sales session.
  • SS = A three hour selling session – offered by Troop 75 on Saturdays and select Sundays beginning on July 24 and continuing for 5 weeks, ending on August 21. Each three hour selling session counts as one sales session regardless of the amount of tickets sold. Typically, a Scout may earn $35 – $160 during each three hour sales session.
  • AD = Business Ad on placemat – Every $50 counts as one sales session. A small ad is $30; large ads are $60.
    Combo: You can combine a $30 Ad and $20 FF to count as one sales session.

Parent Expectations
Parents are encouraged to volunteer as much as possible, but are expected to either: (i) be a driver for at least one Group selling session on a Saturday or (ii) volunteer the day of the breakfast. One parent from each scout’s family is required to drive or work a shift at the Pancake Breakfast.

What happens if I don’t meet the minimum requirements?
All Scouts who attain the minimum requirements stated above will pay a lower re-charter fee. Scouts who do not attain the minimum requirements will pay the full re-charter fee.

What happens if I meet the sales requirement, but I cannot work the Pancake Breakfast on September 11?
If a Scout cannot be in attendance to work the Pancake Breakfast on September 11, 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. due to a required school sport, required school function or a family wedding, their parent should email Cindy Brennan at brennancindy@msn.com no later than July 31 with the reason. Cindy will review the request and let you know if it is an approved absence and give the Scout an alternative assignment. If the absence is approved and the Scout completes the alternative assignment, the family will pay the lower re-charter fee. An unexcused absence or failure to notify Cindy Brennan of any scheduling conflicts prior to July 31 will result in the Scout having to pay the full re-charter fee.

All sessions are scheduled in advance with sessions available on Saturdays and two select Sundays starting at 9:30 AM and 1:00 PM. You will now be able to signup online. See the Sign-Up Genius link earlier on this page.
