You can support Scouting through our various special events.
According to a Louis Harris survey Scouting helps young people, "tell the difference between right and wrong." The study also showed that participation in Scouting programs is tied to staying away from drugs, building self-confidence, helping at home and a strong sense of self-worth and ethical values.
For Scouting to move forward and bring its values-based programs to more youth it requires the participation of youth and volunteers, as well as the financial support of the community.
Aloha Council is paid for through:
- The youth by earning and saving his money for handbooks, uniforms, dues of membership and camp fees
- The unit leaders by personal expense for transportation, uniforms, equipment, special training and time for unit activities
Funds from Friends of Scouting and other charitable gifts support professional leadership, the Council Service Center, camping facilities, unit leader training, the Scouting program, organizing new units and recruiting new members and administration.
Your tax-deductible contribution or estate gift will ensure continuation of the Scouting program in your community.
To support Scouting if you are currently in Scouting, think of those friends, family, co-workers, business associates and others who can get involved in Scouting. Everyone has skills and abilities that can help Scouting. Scouting will help adult leaders grow in thier own leadership skills and personal abilities.
