Friends of Scouting

At our Court of Honor last week we heard a presentation by representatives from our Council about the annual Friends of Scouting campaign. It costs $264 per scout to provide scout programs at the Council level. The Friends of Scouting fundraising campaign provides about 20% of the funding necessary to run the Council and events. (About 80% of the total budget goes directly to scout programs.) Our goal is to have 100% of our scout families return the donation card. If you are able to contribute, thanks! Even if you can not make a monetary donation, there is a benefit to our troop if you return the card. Please download and print it, and return it to the Council at:

Des Plaines Valley Council

Thank you on behalf of our scouts.
