In addition to registration, our council collects a $26 per person, mandatory "activity fee" that replaces the FOS program.

Popcorn is more for the units rather than council. After all out of their "third" comes the freight cost and incentives they offer, not to mention employee hours administrating the sale.
I don't know... our Council's popcorn sale is usually just under $3 million. That million going back to Council goes a lot further than covering their costs. Most of the 'running' of the sale is done by a volunteer Council Popcorn Kernel.
