SCOUTING NEEDS YOU
Scouts have always led the way, been prepared, helped other people, striven to be good citizens, and worked to be brave. Times like this are exactly why we need Scouting.
While Scouting has continued during this unique time, fundraising has been extremely challenging. Special events have been cancelled, collections on the annual campaign are down, and in the blink of an eye, revenue from summer camp and other in-person activities have disappeared.
We know there are better days ahead, but we also know that without identifying meaningful sources of funding to bridge the gap, our services and programs will not be able to be delivered at the same level in the future. So, what is at risk? The future leadership of our community. With less Scouting, there will be fewer leaders and we are committed to not let that happen. Our community needs Scouting more than ever!
Our council has implemented several expense cutting strategies to offset the loss of revenue as well as developed new opportunities to raise additional funds including this Secure the Adventure Campaign. The funds raised will go directly to support Scouting in the 64 counties we serve during this time of need.
We have an ambitious goal to raise $200,000 through this campaign by December 31. If you have already donated to Scouting this year, thank you! If you are interested in giving more, thank you again! Your support will help the Lincoln Heritage Council continue to serve thousands of families and help to build children into values-based leaders that our community so desperately needs.
During this time of social distancing, Scouting continues! Visit our new website section SCOUTING AT HOME!
