Friends of Scouting
Your Gift Makes a Difference
More than 30,000 Atlanta youth take part in the once-in-a-lifetime adventures and character building programs that can only be found in Scouting. In doing so, they discover skills they never knew they had and develop into the leaders we’ll need in the years to come.
Last year, the 634 Scouts who earned their Eagle rank gave 103,976 hours back to our community in service. Thousands of Scouts also came together to collect 146,970 pounds of food to feed Atlanta’s hungry. Scouts are more likely than non-Scouts to graduate from high school and to stay away from drugs.
Scouting makes a dramatic, positive impact on Atlanta’s youth, our families, and our communities, but it won’t happen without your support.
Your gift to Friends of Scouting provides trained leaders, program materials, camping facilities, and insurance for safe and fun experiences. The annual Friends of Scouting campaign provides 36% of our Council’s budget. It is because of the generosity of our Scouting families and community supporters that the amazing benefits of Scouting are possible in Atlanta.
Your Gift to Friends of Scouting Ensures:
- Every youth in metro Atlanta has the opportunity to be a Scout, no matter their economic circumstance
- First-class camping programs at Bert Adams, Woodruff, and Allatoona Aquatics Base
- Support and training for more than 10,000 volunteer leaders that make the Scouting program possible
- Materials and program development for the exciting, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that can only be found in Scouting
- A safe and fun Scouting experience with insurance for Scouting activities
