Friends of Scouting Campaigns

The true cost of Scouting is much higher than what most people realize. Help us provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect and life-long values.  

Your financial investment, plus your time and talent, is among the greatest gifts you can give.
