Friends of Scouting
Before January 15th, your unit should schedule a Family Friends of Scouting presentation. Ideal settings for the presentation would be the Blue & Gold Banquet or a Troop Court of Honor, but please make sure they are event conducive to a successful presentation (high attendance, audience attention, etc.)
The Friends of Scouting Campaign is the direct fundraising campaign conducted annually by the Heart of America Council to provide each family in Scouting the opportunity to make a financial contribution to the operating success of the Council. Without the financial support of our families, many of the services available to units such as youth camperships, camp staff scholarships, adult leader training, insurance, full-time staff at the office and camps, and recruitment and marketing materials would be severely compromised or unavailable.
If you have questions, please email or call Anthony Gonnello at firstname.lastname@example.org or 816-569-4966.
