Get Rewarded for Completing Your FOS Presentation!

Thank you for making Friends of Scouting a priority in your unit.

Scouting provide fun, challenging programs for Scouts of every age, but we need your help to make that possible. That’s where the Friends of Scouting campaign (FOS) comes in- 83 cents of every dollar raised goes right back to the young men and women in Scouting. Your gift helps offset the cost to make Scouting a reality, and is a tax deductible contribution. The Connecticut Yankee Council is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that relies on local contributions. Your employer may match support for Scouting. Contact your human resources department to have your gift matched.
