Friends of Scouting
Friends of Scouting (FOS) is the annual giving campaign of the Palmetto Council.
Friends of Scouting provides the necessary funds to ensure a quality Scouting program for youth. More specifically, by supporting FOS, you help keep:
- The cost of Council camps affordable
- The Council Service Center and camp facilities in top condition
- The promise of a quality Scouting experience to your son or daughter and others in Scouting
There are three FOS campaigns each year: the Family Campaign, the Executive Board Campaign, and the Business Campaign. Each is vital to the programs and services of the Council. The money raised through the annual FOS campaign offsets the cost of training Scouting leaders, operating the Council camps and service centers, and providing other resources to Cub Packs, Scout Troops, Varsity Scout Teams, Venturing Crews, and Sea Scout Ships throughout the Council.
