Friends of Scouting

An Investment In Character

It is through caring "Friends of Scouting" that the Gulf Stream Council is able to fulfill its mission to bring Scouting to the seven counties here in southeastern Florida: Indian River, St Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, Okeechobee, Glades and Hendry.

Each year the Gulf Stream Council must raise approximately $100 per Scout to stay in operation. These dollars are in addition to what the unit raises to carry on the program and activities for their Scouts.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many corporations match gifts made by their employees to the Boy Scouts. Some companies give financial contributions on behalf of the time you give as a volunteer. Below is a list of companies with mataching gift programs. However, do not assume that your company does not participate if they are not on the list. Please contact the human resources department of your company for more information about their matching gifts program.

With your help, Scouting affects and impacts the lives of our community’s youth.
