Boy Scout Fundraising
Fun, Effective Fundraising
Hundreds of Scout Groups nationwide use our ‘Guaranteed to Succeed Fundraiser’ each year to finance the activities of their boy scout troops.
100% of the profits you earn stay within your unit! And, you choose the price you want to charge for each product. We recommend a mark-up of from $6 – $10 per item so you can choose the prices you feel will work best in your community.
When you choose Mickman for your Christmas Boy Scout Wreaths Fundraiser, not only are you choosing a fundraiser that will “maximize your earnings while minimizing your effort” – you are also supporting a program to assist in reforesting our country!
We strive to make each and every product we hand craft as fresh and beautiful as possible. The mantra we stress to all of our employees is that each wreath they make is one they would be proud to display on their mother’s front door. To ensure that each wreath we make arrives just as full and fluffy as when we made it, we designed and patented a custom carton in which to store and transport your wreaths. See Patented Packaging
Fundraising Sales Aids
‘A picture is worth a thousand words.’ When your members are offering our Holiday Evergreen Products to their customers, they are using our FREE, highest quality Sales Aids to assist them in making the sale. We feel our Sales Aids and other brochures are 2nd to none in the industry.
When we harvest Balsam Boughs, we choose only the newest growth from each tree and only clip off the ends of the branches. This allows the branch to regenerate new growth off of which we can harvest in 4 – 5 years. These Sustainable Harvesting techniques ensure that the forests from which the boughs are harvested remain healthy for generations to come.
Years ago we also recognized that these forests provided our company and customers with a valuable resource. In 2007 John & Chris Mickman made a commitment to fund the planting of an evergreen tree for each Holiday Gift Product we sold. To date, Mickman Brothers has funded the planting of over 740,000 tree seedlings in 49 States.
Ease of Sale
Our Holiday Evergreens are easy to sell. Period. Your members will be offering a high value product (no middle-man) of a product that nearly homeowner in the country would like to have on their front door to help welcome home friends and family for the Holidays.
We strongly encourage you to pre-sell all the products you wish to order from us. This will enable you to eliminate any risk to your Scout Unit. Your payment is not due for your Traditional Program Products until the conclusion of your Fundraiser.
One of Our Successful Scout Fundraising Groups
“It is September 1, 2013 and the high today in Phoenix is forecast to be 105 degrees, not exactly the type of weather that evokes Christmas. But members of Boy Scout Troop 379 – and our repeat customers – are already asking when we will begin taking orders for Christmas wreaths and decorations. Most Arizona residents either migrated here or have family ties to colder parts of the country. Having a Mickman wreath or centerpiece in the house for the holidays evokes childhood memories.
We aren’t just selling wreaths, we’re selling nostalgia and tradition.
Over the past several years, our Scouts have earned more than $15,000 to help defray the costs of summer camp in places like Seattle, Connecticut and California; high-adventure trips to hike the Grand Canyon and canoe the Colorado River; and cover the costs of Troop dues and other related expenses. This is one of the simplest and most successful fundraisers available. Troop 379 and Arizona love Mickman Brothers!”— Boy Scout Troop 379
