Friends of Scouting
Join us on the “Pathway to a New Century of Scouting”.
The Annual Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign is an important source of revenue for the services provided to youth by the Des Plaines Valley Council. In 2010, approximately 81% of DPVC’s expenses were program related. Almost 20% of our revenue came from the FOS campaign. Help us continue our journey into the New Century of Scouting. Become a Friends of Scouting donor today.
Please consider that it costs the Council approximately $252 to support one scout this year. Donors who support one scout will receive a limited edition Council Shoulder Patch from our Scout Law series.
