Friends of Scouting 2018 - Investing in Families
What is Friends of Scouting?
The Friends of Scouting (FOS) annual giving campaign raises a significant portion of the council's budget from the families of youth who participate in Scouting. You help make all the difference!
How does it work?
The Friends of Scouting (FOS) annual giving campaign is planned, directed and conducted by volunteers - and its success depends of them! Each volunteer team has a professional advisor (usually a district executive) to assist with communication, training and supplies.
Instant recognition for all gifts and pledges is done at a pack or troop meeting for any giving level. The presenter will be responsible for following up with the unit FOS chairman to contact the families that were not at the presentation. They will collect the pledge cards and the contributions and deliver them to the district executive or local council service center.
What are my resources?
Contact your local District Executive to schedule a presentation to your pack or troop, or for more information about Friends of Scouting, please call the Pine Tree Council at (207) 797-5252.
