Southeast Louisiana CouncilGivingFriends of Scouting (FOS)

Friends of Scouting is the annual fundraising campaign for the Southeast Louisiana Council. The campaign provides an opportunity for families, friends, alumni, businesses, and community organizations to support Scouting. The annual campaign is a vital part of ensuring that the Southeast Louisiana Council can support Scouts and Volunteers throughout our 9 Parish region. 

Friends of Scouting helps:

  • Recruit and train adult leaders and youth
  • Provide assistance to those in need
  • Keep camps and activities affordable
  • Enhance programming and facilities
  • Provide communication tools for volunteer leaders

Friends of Scouting contributions provide approximately 29 percent of the support the council receives each year. The success of Scouting depends on those who support it. Please help Scouting provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s fun, exciting, adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect, and life-long values. There are many options to make a pledge or donation today!
