FRIENDS OF SCOUTING ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN
OUR ANNUAL OPERATING FUNDRAISER TO SUPPORT SCOUTING IN THE HAWKEYE AREA COUNCIL
Our largest source of funding comes from parents, community organizations, alumni, and the general public who contribute to our annual Friends of Scouting Campaign. Gifts can be made of any size and can consists of cash, securities, or even goods and services.FAMILY FRIENDS OF SCOUTING
Our strongest supporters are often those who know Scouting first-hand. Each year, we coordinate Friends of Scouting presentations at Pack, Troop, and Crew gatherings to ask Scouting families for their support. Presentations are made by Scouting volunteers and usually last 10 minutes. A Friends of Scouting presentation is an opportunity for our families and friends to pledge their contribution towards a better Scouting future.
COMMUNITY FRIENDS OF SCOUTING
Community leaders know that Scouting helps prepare our young people for life.. As a result, many businesses, leaders, and Scouting alumni make Scouting a part of their annual giving.
