Continued Support

There are many ways to contribute to Scouting including Employer match, FOS, Endowments and Tributes. With your continued support, you insure that Scouts become outstanding citizens, such as yourself. Scouting teaches children and youths to be proud of their community, and to become strong leaders by overcoming obstacles and gaining confidence in learning to do it themselves. 


Scouting is scout led so young men and women take it upon themselves to learn and grown with the guidance of our many generous volunteers. Whether it’s a monetary donation, or a non-monetary donation, we make sure your resources are well spent. 

Thank you for your continued support!

Does your employer offer Employee Match?

A very popular way to contribute is an employer match. Many companies will match the donations you have made to Scouting as long as you contact your HR department. You can use this chart to see if your company does Employer Match or check the link below

Join us every year on Giving Tuesday

Rainbow Council has a proven track record of shaping young people into leaders of outstanding character – people who understand the meaning of accountability and the importance of servant leadership. On #GivingTuesday, December 3rd, we’re asking our community to help us continue that record by supporting Scouting.
