Foundation Gifts

BSA Foundation Gifts

The Boy Scouts of America National Foundation supports Scouting in ways that complement efforts of local councils and other Scouting organizations.

We financially support the mission, values, and programs of local councils of the Boy Scouts of America and Scouting organizations throughout the world by promoting and soliciting gifts, grants, and matching funds from individuals, corporations, and foundations interested in supporting Scouting both nationally and internationally.

Donor-Advised Gifts

The BSA Donor Advised Fund (“Fund”) permits donors to make an irrevocable gift to further of the mission of the BSA and, potentially, other qualified charities.

Planned Gifts

In addition to gifts made during the donor's lifetime, the BSA Foundation can accept a wide range of planned gifts. These include bequests, estate gifts, retirement plan beneficiary designations, charitable trusts, and annuity gifts.
