Friends of Scouting!

Thank you for taking a moment to consider a gift to Scouting! We appreciate you and all you do for the young men and women in our program!

2019 is a monumental year in the San Francisco Bay Area Council and it is first and foremost monumental because of our youth. Young women have been welcomed into Cub Scouting and are beginning to take part in our program. We are excited to see the benefits of Scouting being brought to all our youngsters.

In 2018, our 101st anniversary of Scouting in the Bay Area we welcomed 245 new Eagle Scouts into the Eagles Nest and encouraged and supported nearly 10,000 young men and women in our programs. Combined these young people contributed 93,717 hours of community service to Alameda, San Mateo and San Francisco counties.

Friends of Scouting is the only time we ask the community in general to contribute to the council. The SFBAC provides many of the services we all rely upon. Including:

  • Training for our 3,500 volunteers
  • Year Round upkeep of our council camps (Camp Royaneh, Rancho Los Mochos and Wente Scout Reservation)
  • Professional Staff
  • Support Staff
  • Camp Promotions
  • Administrative Support
  • The Service Center in San Leandro
  • Reference Publications and Resources

We hope you see the value in Scouting and make a contribution benefiting our Scouts. It takes us $6.1 Million dollars to support our youth. Approximately $509 per youth. We ask that you give what you can to support a Scout. Don’t give until it hurts your family but give until you feel good about supporting your boys.

We need your support!

For more information, please contact Tim Welty, Field Director at tim.welty@scouting.org.  To make a gift to Scouting, mail to the San Francisco Bay Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, 1001 Davis Street, San Leandro, CA 94577-1514.

Workplace/Matching Gifts - Increase Your Boy Scout Support
