The Investment in Character Campaign helps keep Scouting an affordable and effective youth development program. Funds generated by the campaign are essential and insure a quality Scouting program for all of our Scouts and leaders to enjoy. 

 Your support directly impacts services like...

  •  Camping programs and facilities at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation and the Theodore Naish Scout Reservation.
  •  Scoutreach assistance for youth in the urban core of Kansas City, youth with special needs and youth from families with limited financial resources.
  •  Liability and accident insurance coverage for all registered Scouts and adult leaders.
  •  A trained professional staff to provide support to unit leaders and a Council Service Center to provide “behind the scenes” support for advancement and record keeping.
  •  Training for all adult leaders.

More than 35,000 youth across the 19 counties that the Heart of America Council serves are involved in Scouting programs. The cost to deliver the Scouting program to each one of them is $159 per Scout. Scouting needs your help no matter the amount of financial support you can give.
