Because of you…
boys and girls enjoy the country’s best camps, innovative STEM programs and scholarships.
As you continue to make Scouting a part of your philanthropy, you join an elite group who share your desire to impact the future of our youth. We are committed to showing our gratitude.
By contributing to Scouting, you will have a profound impact on America. More youth will experience the program that will further instill values and character in their moral fiber. Your gift truly will have a direct impact on our world. Imagine if all of our leaders today lived their lives according to the Scout Oath and Law. Investing in the Boy Scouts of America creates opportunities for youth to gain memorable experiences and be instilled with values, principles and skills that will help them develop into the future leaders of our nation.
Endowment provides annual funding to assist financially deserving Scouts and annual maintenance and repair to our facilities. Gifts to the Endowment Fun help secure long-term future of the Occoneechee Council, BSA. Endowed funds have a common objective: to provide support for not just one year or even one generation, but in perpetuity.
