Investment in Character

Scouting in our community thrives because of generous donations from Scouting supports. Businesses and families alike donate to Scouting each year to ensure Scouts in the program are able to participate in all we have to offer. The current cost to deliver the Scouting program in the Heart of America Council is $169 per Scout per year. Family Investment in Character presentations take place during pack and troop meetings, or you may be contacted by a volunteer from your unit. Family Investment in Character is an opportunity for Scouting families to directly support the Scouting program they know and enjoy.
