A Message from the Foundation Chairman
My fellow Scouters,
This has been quite an amazing year for Scouting- a year of change and opportunity. The events of 2018 have inspired you to give to your Scouting passions. From the excitement of welcoming girls to Cub Scouts to recovering from the devastating fires at Philmont, you have responded with $50,510,818 in new gifts this year- launching the Growing Future Leaders campaign over the halfway mark to our $250 million goal! I hope you can connect to the stories we share in our look at 2018. They reflect all of you and the hard work and support you give to Scouting near you and around the country. I thank you for helping young people find their future careers. Thank you for supporting a welcoming environment for the newest members of our Scouting family and helping your communities provide a Scouting experience for all. It’s Because of You… Scouting has the resources needed to ensure successful futures for our nation’s young people.
