Friends of Scouting
Your Gift Makes a Difference
More than 10,000 area youth take part in great Scouting adventures, character building and leadership programs that can only be found in Scouting. Scouts discover skills they never knew they had and develop into the leaders that we’ll need tomorrow.
Last year, over 200 Scouts earned their Eagle rank and gave over 46,000 hours back to our community in service. Thousands of area Scouts also collected 230,000 pounds of food to feed the hungry through our annual Scouting for Food Community Food Drive.
Scouting makes a dramatic, positive impact on our six-county area, our families, and our communities, but it doesn't happen without your support. Your gift to Friends of Scouting provides trained leaders, program materials, camping facilities, and staff support for safe and fun Scouting experiences. It is because of the generosity of our Scouting families and community supporters that the amazing benefits of Scouting are possible throughout our local communities.
Your Gift to Friends of Scouting Ensures:
- Every youth in our area has the opportunity to be a Scout, no matter their economic circumstance
- Excellentcamping programs at our three council camps
- Support and training for nearly 5,000 volunteer leaders that make the Scouting program possible
- Materials and programs for exciting, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that can only be found in Scouting
- A safe and fun Scouting experience
