Friends of Scouting
Friends of Scouting

Current: $13,368
Goal: $24,168

"Friends of Scouting" is an annual direct-solicitation campaign, reaching out to Scout families, service organizations, and businesses. Friends of Scouting is the council's largest source of income.

It costs our council $250 to provide one year of quality program for each Scout.

What does a Friends of Scouting investment provide?

  • Recruit and train youth and leaders
  • Provide assistance to those in need
  • Keep our camps and activities affordable
  • Enhance programming and facilities
  • Provide communication tools for volunteer leaders

The success of Scouting depends on those who support it. Please help Scouting provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s fun, exciting, adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect and life-long values.

Your generous tax-deductible gift to the Boy Scouts of America provides direct funding for educational initiatives and active learning that program fees alone do not cover.

Please consider making your today!
