Friends of Scouting
Invest in Scouting
The Boy Scouts of America is the nation's foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training. In the future, Scouting will continue to offer young people responsible fun and adventure, instill in young people lifetime values and develop in them ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law, and train young people in citizenship, service and leadership. There are numerous ways to invest in Scouting. Investments that can benefit youth today, as well as into the future.
Each year parents of Scouts and community members in the Suwannee River Area Council are asked to contribute to the annual Friends of Scouting campaign. This campaign is an essential component of the funding efforts for our council, raising over 35% of the council`s annual income.
The Council Finance Team under the leadership of Chris Jensen is working to achieve the annual Council Friends of Scouting goal. The Team will be working to achieve the 2016 goal through individual and corporate solicitations. In addition, each District has their own FOS goal and launch their local campaigns January through May. Personal gifts and financial support truly make a difference - Scouting is alive and well in 13 counties serving over 2,200 youth in the program. Please consider a gift to the Friends of Scouting campaign today. Click here for the 2016 Friends of Scouting Brochure.
