Where the Money Goes
A Good Steward of Your Gift
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the generosity of others to help us implement our mission and provide character development programs, camps, training, service centers, professional support, and so much more to our members.
You trust us to put your dollars to good use… and it’s a trust we value and work at earning every day.
The ultimate benefactor of your gift is our youth – 12,000 youth in a five-county service area. Programs and services that support the activities of packs, troops, teams, crews, Scoutreach, and Learning For Life groups receive the majority of funding at 80% of our of budget. Administrative and operating costs associated with managing the Council account for 11%. And, only 9% of the budget is expended on activities related to our fundraising effort.
Through the generosity of our supporters, we can continue to provide a Scouting program that is affordable for our families, provides resources and training for our leaders, and is able to reach out, each year, to another generation of youth.
