Central North Carolina CouncilAbout UsPlanned GivingFriends of Scouting Forever Program



Friends of Scouting is the annual giving campaign of the Central North Carolina Council that helps provide the necessary funds to ensure a quality Scouting program for every youth.  The Friends of Scouting Campaign is the council’s largest source of income.  Annually, Friends of Scouting donors are a key factor to the viability and quality of our Scouting program.

The Boy Scouts prepare youth to enhance the quality of life for themselves, residents of the Central North Carolina region, the citizens of North Carolina, the nation, and the world.  Consider a gift to endow your Friends of Scouting gift through your estate plans.

Please consider sustaining your annual FOS giving. You can continue to impact Scouts for generations to come by making a gift to the Boy Scouts of America endowment equal to 25 times your annual giving.  For example:

  • $2,500: Your gift is endowed with a $62,500 bequest.
  • $5,000: Your gift is endowed with a $125,000 bequest.
