Your generosity is an investment in "HONOR" Scouting is something that works its way deep into the minds and hearts of the young men and women it touches. Ask any old salt who claims to have been a Scout to repeat the Scout Oath and, despite the fact that he has probably forgotten much, he will recite "On my honor..." without hesitation. Isn't a program that can have that much impact on a life worth your support? Even if you can't be an active leader, your financial support can insure that the good work Scouting does continues here in Northeastern Pennsylvania with a number of programs tailored to match your ability to give.
Northeastern Pennsylvania Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing strong character, good citizenship, and promoting physical fitness in the youth of this region. Your financial gift of any size ensures that Scouting's 90 year tradition of serving youth will continue here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. We depend on families, leadership, and community organizations that benefit from Scouting to help out with direct contributions.
To insure the future of our council and our ability to continue serving the youth of our area, our council has created a special Endowment Fund. The money in the Endowment Fund is carefully invested by a corporate trustee, under guidelines given to it by the Council Executive Board. The purpose of an endowment fund is to never spend the principal of the fund. Instead, interest earned by the fund each year is transferred into the operating fund to help finance the council's programs.
The endowment fund needs to grow each year. The National Boy Scout Council believes that ultimately 25% of a council's operating budget will need to come from this kind of income. Everyone can help build our endowment fund in any of the following ways.
