The Northwest Georgia Council Friends of Scouting campaign has a target to raise $300,000 for 2010. Friends of Scouting helps secure the operating funds needed by the Northwest Georgia Council to provide the many services offered to support unit programs, such as training, insurance, program materials, advancement materials, camping facilities and programs, council and district activities, and much more.
Family contributors who invest $150 or more in the 2010 Friends of Scouting Campaign will receive a special edition "Physically Strong & Morally Straight" collector's patch. A premiere Scouting program requires a significant investment. The Family Friends of Scouting program is extremely important to the success of our overall fundraising efforts because it shows the rest of the community how committed our members are to the Scouting program and serves as an example when asking for their support.
For more information, please contact your District Friends of Scouting Chair, District Executive, or call the Council Office at 706-235-5545.

Workplace/Matching Gifts - Increase Your Boy Scout Support
Many corporations match gifts made by their employees to the Boy Scouts. Some companies even give financial contributions on behalf of the time you give as a volunteer. If you’re unsure if your company makes matching gifts, check with your human resources department for more information. Please contact Janice Childs at firstname.lastname@example.org if you become aware of other companies that do matching gifts
