Friends of Scouting

Family Friends of Scouting

Unit support is vital to the success of the Scouting program. It is only through the Friends of Scouting campaign that we can continue to provide on-going support to our Scouting units. Friends of Scouting helps pay for camp improvements, camperships, training, program materials, roundtable, membership support and much, much more. If you missed the FOS Kickoff in November, please contact the Zone Chair from your community.


Community Friends of Scouting

Scouting depends on the financial support of its communities.  Through the Community FOS campaign, businesses, community groups, and individuals have the opportunity to invest in the future - your contribution supports local scouting in a number of ways.  Those interested in supporting our world class programs either through a direct contribution or through a gift in-kind (product or service) can either click the link below or contact John Bermel.
