BSA National Foundation

NEW!  Tools for Confidential Recordkeeping for our friends and supporters.  Visit our Major Gift Resources page.

The Boy Scouts of America National Foundation supports Scouting in ways that complement efforts of local councils and other Scouting organizations.

We financially support the mission, values, and programs of local councils of the Boy Scouts of America and Scouting organizations throughout the world by promoting and soliciting gifts, grants, and matching funds from individuals, corporations, and foundations interested in supporting Scouting both nationally and internationally.
