Scoutrees Fundraiser

JUST PLANTING TREES?

Groups who are conducting Scoutrees programs as a community service, without the fundraising portion, can purchase Scoutrees crests for $1.00 per crest. Crests will be available in late April.

Please contact Jen at jenaustin@scouts.ca or call 416-490-6364 ext. 246 for more information.

PLANNING YOUR SCOUTREES EVENT

To ensure you have a successful Scoutrees fundraiser and tree planting event, it’s important to plan ahead of time. We have provided you with some helpful Step-by-Step suggestions.

  • STEP 1 – Register for Scoutrees
    • Once you’ve decided that your Scout group is going to participate, please contact Victor Woodburne at vwoodburne@sympatico.ca to register in the Scoutrees fundraiser and order fundraising kits and crests.
  • STEP 2 - Decide where you are going to plant trees

Choose the planting location of your choice and register with the organization as described.

  • STEP 3 - Plan your fundraising efforts
    • In the fundraising kit, each participant will have a pledge form to collect pledges from family, friends or co-workers.
    • Canvass your local community by going door-to-door or run a community booth.
    • Donations of $20.00 or more can receive a charitable tax receipt.
    • If you are interested in doing a booth or setting up a table at a local event or store, you can book Scouts Canada banners, tents, popcorn machines and marketing material from the local Scout office. Please email Shana at shall@scouts.ca for more information.

    • Choose the planting location of your choice and register with the organization as described.
  • STEP 4 – Completing the Scoutrees Fundraising Report
    • Once you are done all your fundraising, Scout Groups are asked to send in a report along with a cheque for the 15% to go to the Canadian Scouting Brotherhood Fund. This report should also contain details for any requests for tax receipts.
  • STEP 5 - Share Stories, Pictures Etc.
    • Please be sure to send us your stories or pictures from your fundraising events and tree planting event. Please forward to Shana at shall@scouts.ca
