The Indian Nations Council, Boy Scouts of America has a proven track record of shaping youth into people of outstanding character – people who understand the meaning of accountability and the importance of servant leadership. On #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017, we’re continuing that record by helping Scouts become the leaders of the future. Read on to discover how you can help invest in tomorrow’s leaders this #GivingTuesday.

What Is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

How Your Support Helps Scouting

Scouting is a wonderful program for you and your son. However, did you know it costs the Indian Nations Council $185.00 per year to provide your son with his Scouting experience? This represents the cost of conducting recruiting efforts such as School Night for Scouting, training leaders, maintaining camping facilities, keeping track of advancement records, publishing a Council newsletter for our volunteers, year-round support from a full-time staff and service center and much more.

The Indian Nations Council must raise these funds from interested individuals, businesses and parents. Although we receive support 13% of our funding from the generosity of the United Way, it is not enough to fully fund Scouting in our community.

Your son’s membership fee supports the National operations of the Boy Scouts of America. The pack/troop money earning efforts support your unit. Friends of Scouting goes to underwrite the cost of Scouting for each youth.

The Indian Nations Council makes it possible for over 18,000 youth to participate. Your support is needed and will be appreciated.
