Build the Future
For over 10 years, the New Birth of Freedom Council has delivered life-changing experiences to thousands of young people. These experiences are based on the values found in the Scout Oath and Law, and The Boy Scouts of America’s mission “Preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices throughout the course of their lifetime.” By financially supporting the New Birth of Freedom Council’s 2022 “Build the Future” annual Friends of Scouting (FOS) Campaign campaign you help further Scouting’s mission.
As you can see below the New Birth of Freedom Council provides so many important services to our entire Scouting Family. These services are vital in supporting the high-quality Scouting experience expected when a young person enrolls in the program.
Conducting a Unit FOS presentation provides Scouting families, volunteers, and friends the opportunity to learn about our council and contribute financial resources to deliver Scouting here in Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Perry, York Counties. A 15 minute Family FOS presentation is conducted during unit gatherings such as a Pack Blue and Gold or Troop Court of Honor during the months of February, March, or April. To address large group gathering concerns, a virtual Family FOS presentation can be arranged. Scouting needs your help to “Build the Future”; schedule a unit Family FOS presentation today by contacting your District Executive.
The FOS campaign is one of the New Birth of Freedom Council’s largest sources of income generated to help support units in the delivery of a quality program throughout the year. When you take into account the total expenses in the Council’s operating budget, we invest approximately $150 per youth member annually in supporting the units in our area.
The $66 annual youth registration fee you pay goes directly to the national Boy Scouts of America for program development – none of it stays local with the New Birth of Freedom Council to help pay for any of our council’s operating costs.
