As the we enter our 5th year of offering the Major Gifts Seminar,  we thank the almost 400 Scout executives, council volunteers, and BSA staff with major gift duties who have invested in major gifts education.

5 Years and over 4500 hours of Major Gifts Education!

“The most eye-opening part of this course is how the major gifts process is mostly foreign territory to how we raise money in the Boy Scouts.  We can be very  focused on the current year. It is easy to forget that patience can be the best solution to relationship building and long-term sustainable funding.”- Council Executive
