Fund Development

Monmouth Council conducts a number of fundraising and support campaigns to fund the program delivery mission of the Boy Scout of America.  Scouting is 100% locally supported, there are no government funds, local, state or federal, earmarked to support Scouting.  The annual membership fee paid by every member of the Boy Scouts of America is channeled directly to the National Council to cover the costs of program development, literature creation, and technology services.  Monmouth Council receives no Community Care United Way funding, only donor designated gifts.

Monmouth Council relies on the financial and in-kind support of our Scouting families and Friends of Scouting to keep the Scouting promise of fun, adventure, and education.  Each Scouting family is asked to make a contribution to the Monmouth Council early each year through the Family Friends of Scouting Campaign.  It is expected that each family will support the council at the $52 level, one dollar a week, while recognizing that it costs $156 annually per Scout to make the services, programs, and camps available.

To find out about the other ways you can support the Monmouth Council please visit our donation pages.
