Each year the Cornhusker Council conducts a Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign to raise unrestricted operating dollars to cover, in part, the annual expenses involved in the operations of our council. We have known for years that there are individuals, businesses, corporations, and trusts that desire to create and maintain a connection with the council through the giving of financial resources to Scouting. The unrestricted financial gifts are given with the understanding that the council will use these dollars as needed to ensure the continuation of a quality Scouting program for the youth of our area.
The dollars raised through the FOS Campaign allow us to...keep activity costs to a minimum, operate a Service Center to support our youth and leaders, and provide a trained professional field staff who work directly with our Scout and District leaders.
To Schedule an FOS Presentation, or ask a question, contact the Council Service Center.
Units qualify for this program from the date they complete their Unit Family FOS Goal (as long as it is by last business day in April). They are eligible to receive the incentives until March 31st of the next calendar year.
Your unit goal is based on your June 30th, 2016 membership multiplied by $50.
