Develop our nation's future
Contributing to the Boy Scouts of America creates opportunities for youth to gain memorable experiences and become instilled with values, principles, and skills that will help them develop into the future leaders of our nation.
As a nonprofit organization, the Boy Scouts of America relies on the generosity of charitable donations to support its ongoing operations and future capital expenses at the local and national level. Each gift, regardless of size, provides invaluable funding for programs that benefit Scouts.
Most Scouts’ day-to-day experiences with Scouting come through their individual packs, troops, teams, crews, and ships. These units are overseen by nearly 300 local councils, including the Pine Burr Area Council, which receive an annual charter from the National Council.
The Pine Burr Area Council provides support for units in southern Mississippi, and funds are used to:
- Maintain camp Tiak and the council service center
- Provide insurance
- Maintain membership records
- Pay salaries and benefits to employees
- Purchase program supplies for youth activities sponsored by the council
- Provide volunteer training
Boy Scouts of America is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Your donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
