Friends of Scouting

The Friends of Scouting Annual Campaign provides major ongoing support to the Piedmont Council through an annual gift to the council. These gifts keep the lights on and pay staff to support the great programs we deliver to the youth of our community through an incredible network of some 300 volunteers.

Members of the community support the council throughout the year with outright gifts of cash and securities and sometimes make gifts in honor of a new Eagle Scout or a birthday; or in memory of a loved one.

In addition, in fall of each year, we ask families of Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Venturers to help pay for the privilege of having our own council office here in Piedmont. Fees that families pay their units cover only the cost of National fees and for their own unit activities. None of those funds support the council. We estimate the cost of maintaining the council office at $450 per year per Scout or Cub and $100 per year per Venturer or Explorer. We ask that Cub/Scout families make a contribution toward that cost of $250 per year and that Venturer/Explorer families make a gift of $100. If families are unable to support the council at this level, we ask them to make a gift according to their means. Gifts can be made in installments by check or credit card.

Don’t wait for someone else to “pay the bill”—we need your support now! All annual gifts to the council are tax deductible.
