The 2017 Friends of Scouting Campaign is underway! Friends of Scouting (FOS) is the annual giving campaign to the New Birth of Freedom Council. It provides Scouting’s families, volunteers and friends with the opportunity to financially support the operations of the New Birth of Freedom Council, which provides many important services to your pack, troop or crew, its leaders and Scouts. Presentations are conducted to the families of Scouts at unit meetings typically during the months of January, February or March and usually last about 15 minutes. For more information about the campaign and the recognition items that are available to donors please click here.
