Friends of Scouting provides roughly a third of the money needed to operate the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council's Scouting camps, programs and facilities for a calendar year. These camping and training facilities are the "outdoor classrooms" in which Scouts have fun, learn leadership skills and develop into better young men and women. The Mt. Diablo Silverado Council spends approximately $200 per Scout each year to deliver these benefits and much more.
Even though you have paid your child's registration and dues fees, the registration fee goes directly to the National Office of the Boy Scouts of America. If your child's Scout unit collects dues, that money stays with the unit to help pay for trips and other activities. None of that money helps the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council pay for:
For more information, please contact your District Friends of Scouting Chair, or the Finance Director. To make a gift to Scouting, mail to the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council, Boy Scouts of America, 800 Ellinwood Way, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523-4703 or donate on-line.
Many corporations match gifts made by their employees to the Boy Scouts. Some companies even give financial contributions on behalf of the time you give as a volunteer. Check our Matching Gifts section to see if your corporation is on the list.
