The Boy Scouts of America has been shaping the lives of our youth since 1910.  A Friend of Scouting provides a vital portion of the financial support we need to teach Scouting principles that will result in a positive influence on character, citizenship and personal fitness.  The youth of today are America’s future leaders. You can help shape that future by investing in Scouting today.
Scouting exists because of the volunteer and financial support provided by the community. Baltimore Area Council is funded by a variety of sources.  This includes: direct contributions, events, annual popcorn sale, foundation grants, the United Way and program/activity/camping fees.  Learn more about Scouting costs and funding.  With your support, Baltimore Area Council will bring the nation’s highest quality Scouting programs to many more youth in our area.
There are many ways to contribute to Scouting, including being a volunteer. Here are some ways to support Scouting financially:
Have fun and support Scouting at the same time.  Baltimore Area Council hosts a variety of fundraising events throughout the year including dinners, golf tournaments, and a pheasant hunt. This is a great way to introduce people you know to the impact Scouting makes on youth.
Popcorn Fundraiser
Scouting means "doing". To help packs, troops, and crews raise the necessary funds, Scouting encourages units and individuals to participate in the annual popcorn sale.  This helps teach members the principle of paying their own way while also supporting council operations.
Support Scouting forever. Gifts to endowment funds generate investment interest to continue supporting Scouting forever.  Consider an endowment gift in your will or as recognition for an achievement. Be recognized as a James E. West fellow, 1910 Society, Founders Circle, Heritage or Millennium Society member.
