Support Scouting

Family Friends of Scouting Campaign

Friends of Scouting (FOS) is our annual educational and fund-raising campaign for the Tuscarora Council. It provides Scouting families and volunteers the opportunity to learn more about and support the Council programs and services that benefit their children and other youth in our communities.

You can view our 2019 Friends of Scouting Video Presentation here.

Donors who gift $125 or more will receive a special recognition patch. Individuals can also give to our Friends of Scouting campaign by contacting our Scout Service Center at (919) 734-1714, sending an e-mail to their District Executive, donating online, or by filling out a 2019 Pledge Card, and submitting it the the Council Office.

Distinguished Citizen Award Dinners

The Distinguished Citizen Award recognizes noteworthy and extraordinary leadership of citizens in communities across the United States. Honoring distinguished citizenship delivers a message to our youth that character counts. The lives of distinguished citizens put in place guideposts that serve to inspire our youth to lead, to accept responsibility and to care about principles and causes beyond self-interest. Each year the Council honors a local citizen for business leadership, community service and character. This award dinner is a celebration of the honoree’s achievements and also a fundraiser for local Scouting programs.

Matching Gifts Through Your Employer

Some companies will make matching gifts to non-profits supported by their employees. Check with your Human Resources department to see if your company will match your gift to the Tuscarora Council.

Special Events

The Tuscarora Council holds special events throughout the year that increase recognition and raise funds for its programs. These events include golf tournaments, award dinners and more. We strive to keep our costs low so that your support of these events goes directly to program needs rather than event expenses. In fact, many of our events are directly sponsored by local businesses and individuals!
