World Support for Scouting - You can help!

The Boy Scouts of America and its International Department have created several avenues of financial support for the world Scouting movement. Perhaps the easiest way to help is the World Friendship Fund
 
The World Friendship Fund of the BSA offers a practical Good Turn opportunity for BSA youth members and leaders. Cash contributions are used to assist Scouting through the World Organization of the Scout Movement and through national Scout associations in developing countries. Tax-deductible contributions can be from individuals, units, camps, and training course groups. Unit participation in the World Friendship Fund offers a unique annual service project to benefit brother Scouts around the world.  
 
Need ideas on ways to help?  
  • Take up a collection at a Cub Pack meeting with an International Theme.
  • Put a donation can on the ticket table at your chili feed or pancake breakfast and ask guests to drop in spare change.
  • Donate the contributions from a district camporee "Scouts Own" Sunday service.
The ideas are endless.
