The Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council

  • Raises 100% of its dollars locally
  • Receives no National Boy Scout funding
  • Uses ALL of the dollars raised to support youth in our community

The cost to support one youth in Scouting per year is $275.

Your contribution will help fund:

  • Service to Scouts
  • Maintenance at camping facilities
  • Leadership training for youth and adults
  • Program equipment including: canoes, boats, archery equipment, and camping equipment
  • Provide programs and activities for Scouts (day camp, Camporee, Scout-O-Rama)
