Thank you to all the Scouting families and volunteers who have made an investment in Scouting by supporting NCAC’s Friends of Scouting Campaign! Your contribution ensures that we can keep Scouting strong in our communities for more than 60,000 local participants. Friends of Scouting gifts go towards “behind the scenes” expenses throughout the year that support our local programs. This includes offering special activities at the District and Council level; upkeep and improvements at our Council’s camps – Camp William B. Snyder, Goshen Scout Reservation, and Howard M. Wall; training for our volunteer leaders; and other important activities.
Your support has been especially important this past year as COVID-19 has presented ongoing challenges to our ability to offer a safe program for our members and families. Our Council suffered a $3 million loss from not being able to camping programs last summer, along with severe reductions to unit fundraising through the popcorn program and cancellation of many District events. It is only through the generosity of our Friends of Scouting that we are able to continue supporting our Scouting families and ensuring young people who would otherwise be unable to afford the program have the ability to participate. Our Scouts have repaid that generosity many times over by supporting their communities through service projects that keep our essential workers safe, our neighborhoods clean, and food banks filled with food.
