Essentially Scouts will be able to sell a “camp card” online. • When someone makes a purchase through the online portal, they will receive a greenback membership, including thousands in savings at over 350,000 great places to shop, dine, and travel nationwide. • For each $10 purchase made, customers would receive a 3-month membership to greenback, and for purchases of $25 or greater, they will receive a one-year membership. Sample Greenback Offers: • The Greenback for Scouting Everyday Savings app contains over 350,000 offers at great places to shop, dine, & travel. • The app also contains a powerful hotel booking engine powered by Priceline and offers special hotel rates only for members and not available to the general public. • Some examples of merchant offers include, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Peach Valley Cafe, Firestone Tires, Office Depot, ACE Hardware, Jersey Mike’s, Tijuana Flats, Papa John’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, and many more that can be used NATIONWIDE! Step One - Login and Activate the Unit Fundraiser Management Portal: A. Navigate to your Fundraiser Management Portal at http://startupgreenback.com (recommend using a Chrome Browser). 1) If your Unit used greenback for Scouting in April/May then login with your email address & password. 2) If you do not remember your password or never activated your Fundraiser, select the Forgot Password link and follow the directions. 3) If you are participating for the first time or the Forgot Password indicates your email is not registered, email Tia.Pendleton@cflscouting.org and an invitation to create your Unit Fundraiser will be emailed to you. Step Two - Setup the Unit Fundraiser Site and Invite Scouts to become Boosters: B. After you have logged in, follow the Getting Started Guide located here - https://getgb.us/cflscouting-overview . 1) Create or update your Fundraiser. 2) Invite your Scouts to become Boosters using the Fundraiser Code (located in your Management Portal) and Booster Fundraiser Launch PDF (located in the Getting Started Guide). 3) Special Note - In accordance with Federal Law, any Scout under the age of 13 must have their parent or guardian create their Booster Site. Step Three - Launch the Fundraiser: C. Use the Fundraiser Tools in the Unit Fundraiser and in the Scouts’ Booster Sites using Social Media, Email, Text, and Post on your Unit’s Web Page. 1) As the leader, use the Unit’s Fundraiser Site with your friends, family, colleagues, etc. 2) Encourage your Scouts to spend 15 minutes, 2 to 3 times a week introducing their Booster Site and following up with those previously introduced. 3) Scouts should promote their Booster Site using the share button and the Donor Invitation System inside their Booster Portal. 4) Hold Zoom meetings to review individual successes and discuss unique ideas on how to post Booster Sites throughout social media. 5) Scouts can encourage friends and family to Boost their personal sites by having them use the share button as well!
