Tuscarora Council

We Need Your Help

We are inspired by the many ways we have seen Scouters embody the Scout Oath and Law, and we have been incredibly impressed by the way our team has worked together to ensure continuity for our members, supporters and communities.

As we work to welcome new families into Scouting and welcome back families who are balancing more than ever, we hope you will continue to be inspired by all the good that Scouting can do for youth, families and communities.

As a council, we find ourselves in a challenging position as we emerge from this unprecedented situation in serving our Scouting family. We have lost many of our traditional funding sources due to COVID-19 and have been forced to make difficult decisions to eliminate positions and cut costs. The inability to operate our special events, activities, product sale and summer camp are forcing us to face a $250,000 financial shortfall for the year.

We have an ambitious goal to raise an additional $100,000 by December 31st to meet this challenge and we truly appreciate your help in strengthening Scouting through any means you might have.
