Practically all of our council’s annual budget is raised through individual donors’ gifts, fees collected from our camps and activities, our annual popcorn sale, our Scout Shop sales, plus generous support from foundations and trusts. But there are companies which choose to invest in our program through monetary and/or material support. These corporate citizens make it possible for our council to stretch every dollar contributed by individuals to the maximum extent possible.

The following companies/groups/individuals have stepped up to support Scouting in the Valley. In return, we ask that you consider patronizing these business sponsors and thanking them for their sponsorship.

Why Should Your Company Give To Scouting?

When your company contributes to Scouting, you support the premiere youth leadership and character development program in America. Few organizations—profit or nonprofit—enjoy the nationwide recognition and high regard associated with the Boy Scouts of America. Our council is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that manages its business according to the Scout Law, striving to be Trustworthy in all our actions and Thrifty with our donors’ contributions. We serve more than 2,000 youth across 5 counties in the Valley through a proven program that develops future leaders and young adults of good character.

Ways to Give


Scouting’s strength comes from its volunteers. We can offer your employees, partners, and/or vendors a chance to connect with youth at a traditional outdoor event or a STEM-focused activity. If you’d prefer just to do a Good Turn, we could use your help at one of our camp properties while Scouts are not in attendance. Of course, you’re also welcome to dream up a project that interests your employees and chances are we may have a “fit.” If you’d like to talk about any of these possibilities or others, contact our Director of Community Engagement at:

While financial donations give us the greatest amount of flexibility in administering the Scouting program across all 5 counties we serve, there are some in-kind material donations that would make a big difference in us maximizing our donors’ dollars. You can find a list of these desired in-kind donation items below.
