Family Friends of Scouting

The Golden Spread Council will invest almost $1.5 million in the youth of the panhandle of Texas again this year.  85% of these funds go to directly support Cub Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venture Crews (as well as Learning for Life Groups and Posts) with quality personnel (Scout professionals, office support staff, scout shop staff and camp rangers) and all aspects of the program your unit enjoys (camp property, camping programs, district activities, training, recognition items, etc.) . The Golden Spread Council will invest over $135 per youth member to provide quality Scouting again this year. 

The greatest percentage (36%) of monies to do this comes from direct donations from our “Friends of Scouting” (FOS).  Without this direct support from individuals in our community and our scouting family (adult leaders, parents, and yes, professional staff), the scouts in your pack, troop, crew or post would not have access to the quality programs that they do.

Now is the time to make arrangements for a Family Friends of Scouting presentation at your next Pack Meeting, Blue & Gold Banquet or Boy Scout Court of Honor.  It only takes 15-20 minutes to invite the parents and adult leaders of your unit to join their friends in the Golden Eagle District in making the same commitment.  Contact Mario Perez (358-6500 or mperez@bsamail.org to schedule your unit’s Family Friends of Scouting presentation.
