Friends of Scouting

"Friends of Scouting" is our annual campaign to support the operating expenses of the Western Massachusetts Council. The cost to run the council is approximately $171 per Scout. As you may know, 100% of the annual dues payment go the the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Our council is required to raise its annual operating funds through fundraising and grants programs.

Help keep Scouting strong here in western Massachusetts by becoming a Friend of Scouting!
