Friends of Scouting is the name given to Scouting’s annual financial support campaign.
The Friends of Scouting Campaign is broken into two divisions, Family and Community. The council’s operation, including upkeep and maintenance of our camping properties, registrations and record keeping services, and our field staff, are all funded through private contributions received through the Friends of Scouting Campaign.
Monmouth Council receives no government funding and no United Way Community Care dollars. 100% of Scouts’ and leaders’ registration fees are transmitted to the national council of the Boy Scouts or used directly to pay insurance costs.
Family Friends of Scouting is our annual appeal to our membership for financial support. The cost of delivering the full Scouting program for one Scout is $156. Each Scouting family is asked to support the Monmouth Council at a minimum level of $52, $1 a week. Families that have the ability to provide additional support are encouraged to do so. Our goal is to have 100% unit and family participation in the Friends of Scouting campaign. Currently only 23% of our Scouting families pledge their financial support to Monmouth Council.
For those families that have the ability to support the Monmouth Council at a higher level a special recognition program has been created. All Friends of Scouting supporters who give at the $156 level will receive the Friends of Scouting council shoulder patch pictured above.
Monmouth Council runs seven premier events on a yearly basis. The Joshua Huddy Gala, Golf Outing, Eagle Hall of Fame, Eastern Monmouth Good Scout Reception, Southern Monmouth Good Scout Reception, Western Monmouth Good Scout Reception and the Middlesex Good Scout Reception. All of these event support our programs and camps directly through your support. Click on any of them to donate.
