Friends of Scouting

Thanks to everyone who came out to Schmidt’s Sausage Haus last week for our first Family FOS campaign progress meeting! We had a full room of presenters, chair and Pack/Troop coordinators. There was a ton of energy and some great Scouting stories shared!

A highlight was looking at some recent operating expenses at SKC camp properties. There was interest around some of those tangible items that a potential donor can see at a future camp visit. Here’s some of those recent expenses. Feel free to build into your presentations and share with potential donors.

Also, put on your calendar our next campaign progress meeting:

We are firing up the roadshow!

Thursday, March 15th 6:30PM

Considering our impact, it’s easy to understand why this friend request is so important. It takes $150 to support one Scout for a year and we need 100% participation from our Scouting families to help make this happen. What would this do for the Scouting mission? It would mean we could provide better camping facilities, more training and activities, increased Scout scholarships, and many more benefits directly impacting the lives of Scouts.

A gift to our Friends of Scouting campaign helps us provide accident and general liability insurance to our Scouts and leaders, recruitment and training materials, maintenance of our four camp properties and three Service Centers, and the delivery of quality programs at the council and district levels.

To learn more about how your unit can participate in the annual Friends of Scouting campaign, contact your district executive or family Friends of Scouting chair today!

Your support of Scouting will make a difference in the lives of thousands of young people in central and southern Ohio, and northern Kentucky.  We thank you for your support!
