Friends of Scouting

Friends of Scouting

The Friends of Scouting Campaign is the Council’s single largest source of funding, accounting for 15% of our funding each year. Parents, volunteers, friends, and businesses contribute to help provide local programs and activities throughout the Council territory. Donating to the Friends of Scouting campaign ensure high-quality Scouting programs for every youth.

An investment in Friends of Scouting helps to fund:

  • Local programs and activities throughout the Council territory
  • Camp scholarships, uniforms and fees for youth who could otherwise not participate
  • The Scout Service Center, which coordinates Scouting activities and provides customer service
  • Accident and liability insurance to protect youth and adult members
  • Professional staff who counsel, guide and inspire volunteer leadership
  • Camps and facilities for year-round camping and Cub Scout family outdoor events
  • Opportunities to attend summer camp and high-adventure events
  • Advancement programs that recognize Scouts meeting the goals they set
  • Development and distribution literature and training materials
  • Leadership training for youth who will become future community leaders
