We spend well over $250/Scout/year to provide Scouting programs to your sons and daughters.

Your generous donation makes these programs possible:

  • 4,200 youth enjoying Scouting
  • Thousands of youth attending camps
  • Hundreds of economically disadvantaged youth enjoying Scouting in the Council-funded ScoutReach program
  • Hundreds of Scouts receiving camp scholarships
  • Over 1,700 adult and youth volunteers trained to be Scout leaders
  • Over 500,000 invested in 3 camp properties in the last three years
  • 2 Scout shops and service centers
  • Professional staff managing all Scout programs
  • Day Camp, Cub-ONs, Merit Badge Midways, Scouts BSA Summer Camp and many other programs
About half of Pacific Skyline Council’s annual budget is raised through Community donations: families, businesses, and special events.

Investment in Character accounts for 50% of the donations needed to operate the Scouting programs. The council:

  • Raises 100% of its funds locally
  • Receives no National Boy Scout funding
  • Uses ALL of the dollars raised to support local youth
  • Spends $250 per youth each Scouting year
No Scout will be denied Scouting due to financial inability.  Partial scholarships and fundraisers are available to help Scouts pay their own way.
