Friends of Scouting

Scouting is a high-quality, low-cost, effective youth program because of its unique funding structure, which combines a low annual fee with fundraising at the individual, unit, District, and Council levels. Over 25% of program funding comes from our annual Friends of Scouting campaign. This campaign enables individuals and corporations to directly support the programming that enriches the lives of hundreds of families throughout our community.
