Fiscal security enables local councils and volunteers to dream big and create innovative ways to engage today’s youth. When a financially stable council can increase staffing to meet the vast needs of local youth, Scouting grows. This is critical for the nearly 25% of local councils are understaffed relative to the youth they could serve. Strategies to increase endowment and major gifts are key to bridging this gap.
