Support Scouting

Our annual fundraising campaigns helps provide:

  • Every youth the opportunity to be a Scout, no matter their economic circumstances
  • First-class camping programs
  • Support and training for volunteer leaders
  • Recruitment materials for every unit
  • Online resources
  • Professional staff that serves every community

In Connecticut we are building the leaders of tomorrow. Through Scouting’s programs and adventures, we inspire lives of leadership, character, and service. Your investment helps support our movement that instills intelligence and confidence in those who may find themselves without the knowledge or tools to successfully stride toward a promising future. As we pass the torch to the future, it is only right that we provide the skills not just to succeed but to excel.
