Friends of Scouting - (FOS)


2017 Friends of Scouting Campaign

Troop 323 Scouts and Parents,

The FOS campaign is the one time, each year, when the Northern Star Council asks our scouting families and businesses in the area for financial support. The fees that are paid for attending camps and other scouting activities only cover a portion of the costs for the scouting experience. The average council expense supporting each of the scouts is over $217 per year. This expense covers maintenance of council camps, training for adult volunteers and scouts as well as the costs involved in running the district and council.

As part of the FOS Campaign, Troop 323 is required to return a completed pledge card from every scout family in the troop. Parents for each scout will receive a pledge card at the January Court of Honor. Please consider your pledge of support prior to attending the Court of Honor. As a special reward for completing and turning in your pledge card, you will receive a CD of the troop slide show with pictures from the prior year. Please remember that any pledge is greatly appreciated. The receipt of the CD does not require that you make a donation at the Court of Honor. We just ask that you complete the pledge card and turn it in that evening. All pledges for the FOS Campaign are tax deductible. If you would like your pledge to be applied to the 2016 tax year, please contact me before December 25, 2016!

If you have any questions, please contact Gary at 612-240-0026.

Thank you for all of your support for the Friends of Scouting Campaign.

Gary Prelesnik , Troop 323 FOS Coordinator
