More Ways to Support Scouting

Occoneechee Council is one of the largest and most prominent youth development organizations in North Carolina. We provide young people in Chatham, Cumberland, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Lee, Moore, Orange, Vance, Wake and Warren Counties with responsible fun and adventure while instilling in them lifetime values and ethical character development as expressed by Scout Oath and Law. Your financial support allows the youth and families to continue providing generation after generation the benefits of Scouting!

WHY GIVE?

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.

It costs $300 per Scout for the Occoneechee Council to provide a quality Scouting program each year. We need your help to keep our program strong.

A Scout’s membership fee supports the National office of the BSA, not the Occoneechee Council. A Pack or troop’s money-earning efforts support that particular program.
