Boy Scouts of America

Scouting’s original founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, lived by an interesting motto: “We only have a short time to live, so we must do things that are worthwhile, and do them now.” This belief clearly influenced his vision of the organization he was to create. But it also continues to define the true importance of Scouting, the relevance and impact of its programs, and the vital role that our great volunteers play in making Scouting what it is today.

The endowment is an exciting and logical step toward protecting the financial future of Scouting in Central Florida. It is both symbolic and vital that our mission should not be built just on a foundation of values, but on a foundation of support as well.

Case for Capital

Gifts to the endowment can be made in any amount. In gratitude for such support, Scouting offers a number of distinct endowment recognition awards. To learn more about these or to make a gift click on the link below:

Few things in life are as special as making a difference in the life of a young person, unless it’s seeing the difference that same young person can make in the community and in the lives of others. That’s what Scouting is all about, and it is why we say “thank you” for your interest in and support of thisgreat movement.
