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.
