2019 Friends of Scouting Campaign: "FACES OF THE FUTURE"                                          

 The Friends of Scouting Campaign is about asking for support, but it is also about telling the Scouting story and all the good Scouting has accomplished.

Friends of Scouting is a critical annual fund-raising campaign that assists the Pine Tree Council in offsetting program costs and providing quality service. The true cost of Scouting is much greater that what local dues and camping and event fees cover. All packs, troops and crews are encouraged to participate in the campaign to give families the opportunity to contribute. Schedule your presentation as part of your annual calendar and encourage participation – everything helps to support a strong Scouting program. Yearly registration and charter fees go directly to support the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Pine Tree Council uses the contributions made through the Friends of Scouting campaign to:

  • Maintain camp properties and a service center
  • Organize new Scouting units and support existing ones
  • Provide professional support and leader training
  • Distribute program resources and regular communications
  • Provide criminal background checks for adult leaders

  We need your help to make sure every Unit has a Friends of Scouting presentation sometime between January and May to give our families an opportunity to hear the Scouting story and to support at least one Scout for the year.

Your district team can deliver the Friends of Scouting presentation and we would like one member of your unit to tell their Scouting story and the impact Scouting has had on their family.

Please let us know if we can be of assistance as you plan your Unit's 2019 Friends of Scouting Campaign!
