Help Grow Big Things with the Boy Scouts of America

Donations to the Southern Sierra Council provides our youth a chance to have fun, gain confidence and become leaders who live by the Scout Oath and Law.

Each year the Southern Sierra Council must raise over one million dollars to support quality values-based character education programs to the youth in Kern, Inyo and Mono counties.  Financial resources come from a variety of sources: Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign, foundations and grants, special events, project sales, investment income from endowment gifts, trust funds, bequests, gifts of real and personal property, popcorn sales, Scout shop sales and activity income.

You can make a direct financial contribution to the Southern Sierra Council online with your credit card or electronic check. There are several programs you can use as a contribution vehicle or you may just make a direct general FOS contribution.

Friends of Scouting

Friends of Scouting is the annual giving campaign of the Southern Sierra Council and provides the necessary funds to ensure a quality Scouting program for youth. Scouting exists because of the volunteer and financial support provided by the community. With your support, the Southern Sierra Council will continue to bring the nation’s highest quality Scouting programs to many youth in our area.

We invite you to read the Friends of Scouting fact sheets to see the impact your donation can make and please consider making a gift to help carry on the tradition of Scouting.
