The true cost of scouting does not get covered by basic registration fees. In fact, it's not even close! Therefore the district and the council hold fundraising events to help units and their members raise funds to supplement the difference.
The district participates in three main fundraising activities.
FOS (Friends Of Scouting)
Friends of Scouting is just that. Straight donations of a single gift, or take the option to spread out your gift across the year. In other words you could donate say $120 one time, or $10 per month automatically. If you can give $500, $1,000 or more, please do so.
Remember to contact your employers, or anyone else who could be willing to help with this fantastic cause. Some companies mandate that a percentage of their income be allotted to non profits. Why not scouting, which does so much for so many?
Get your unit to 100 percent participation. Every bit helps!
Adventure Cards (Camp Cards)
Adventure Cards are replacing Camp Cards.
What's the differenced or change?
The Adventure Cards are slick, shiny, thicker, and can even be hole punched to add to your key chain.
In the past discounts were limited by geographical areas. For example there was a West Grove Card, and an East Grove Card, etc.
NOW! Now, it doesn't matter where you are at. You can be anywhere in the general vicinity, and you can use the card across zip codes!
No more straining to read tiny writing.
