Friends of Scouting (FOS) is an annual fundraising campaign planned, directed, and conducted by volunteers. This campaign is an opportunity for families, friends, alumni, business and community organizations to support Scouting. The Friends of Scouting Campaign is a six-month campaign beginning in January and ending in June. During this time, volunteer presenters should visit every Scouting unit - sharing with them the resources that the Northwest Georgia Council provides to help support their unit. They will also share how participating in the FOS helps the Northwest Georgia Council reach more youth and positively impact lives.
The Family Friends of Scouting campaign provides the opportunity to tell the story of the Northwest Georgia Council, its programs, and services as well as why family financial support is needed. We realize that not everyone may be in a position to financially support the Scouting Program, but we feel that it is important that an opportunity is provided so that parents can learn more about the program that their children are enrolled in.
Friends of Scouting “Operational Partners” are those who make a three-year commitment to the fnancial support of operations through the Family Friends of Scouting Campaign. There are four levels of Operational Partners.
