2017 Friends of Scouting Message Board

Greetings 2017 Friends of Scouting Volunteers! Use the message board to post success stories, challenges and any questions you are encountering during the Family FOS Presentation process. Feel free to chime in with any thoughts/best practices. Let’s Dialogue!  

Greetings Family Friends of Scouting team!

Thanks to all of our Family Friends of Scouting Chairs who participated in last week’s campaign progress meeting. It was a great opportunity to gather and share some best practices, challenges and most importantly skills and tactics being used to close out the campaign.

Speaking of closing things out, across the council we have reached a benchmark of sorts…

Collectively we have raised over 50% of our $450,000 campaign goal!

This is outstanding and represents a massive amount of work and dedication.

A toast…

Here’s to the next few months and to another $250,000 for local Scouting!

If you have questions/comments please reach out to TJ -SKC Family FOS Chairman- ( or Marshall Long (

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!
