Friends of Scouting
Our goal is to serve more youth with stronger Scouting programs and activities. The focus of our fundraising effort is service to our youth, their families, and our volunteers. More than 11,000 youth, thier parents & families, and more than 3,500 registered adult volunteers will directly and indirectly benefit from the dollars raised for Scouting in the Northern Lights Council.
Funding for Scouting comes from a variety of sources in including: product sales, activity and camp fees, special events, United Way and income from the council trust fund. However, these sources fall short of providing the funding necessary to deliver the programs and services now offered to Scouts and leaders.
The annual Friends of Scouting (F.O.S.) campaign makes up the balance of the dollars needed. This campaign allows individuals, businesses and organizations who wish to support Scouting an opportunity to do so.
