Annual Campaign- Friends of Scouting

The Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign is the annual giving drive for the Lincoln Heritage Council. Due to the generosity of Scouting families, alumni, corporations and community supporters, the campaign provides 30% of the council budget every year. Without this funding, the council could not provide the resources necessary to provide a quality, adventure-filled Scouting program. Resources and programs funded by Friends of Scouting include:

      • Merit Badge clinics and educational programs.
      • Assistance with Scouting expenses for families facing financial hardship.
      • Maintenance for our three camp properties: Harry S. Frazier, Jr. Scout Reservation in Shepherdsville Kentucky, Tunnel Mill Scout Reservation in Charlestown Indiana and Pfeffer Scout Reservation in Benton Kentucky.
      • Training and educational materials for nearly 3,000 registered volunteers.

The Family Friends of Scouting campaign offers current Scouting families the opportunity to support Scouting with a gift. While our 2023 campaign has concluded, you can still make a gift by clicking here. More details about the 2024 campaign and how you can help will be available soon.

Community Friends of Scouting

Community Friends of Scouting events offer members of the community the opportunity to stay up to date on Scouting while financially supporting the program.
