But there are companies which choose to invest in our program through monetary and/or material support. These corporate citizens make it possible for our council to stretch every dollar contributed by individuals to the maximum extent possible.

Why Should Your Company Become a Scouting Sponsor?

When your company contributes to Scouting, you support the premiere youth leadership and character development program in America. Few organizations—profit or nonprofit—enjoy the nationwide recognition and high regard associated with the Boy Scouts of America. Our council is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that manages its business according to the Scout Law, striving to be Trustworthy in all our actions and Thrifty with our donors’ contributions. We serve more than 22,000 youth across 15 counties in Central Texas through a proven program that develops future leaders and young adults of good character.


Ways to Sponsor Scouting

Volunteer

Scouting’s strength comes from its volunteers. We can offer your employees, partners, and/or vendors a chance to connect with youth at a traditional outdoor event or a STEM-focused activity. If you’d prefer just to do a Good Turn, we could use your help at one of our camp properties while Scouts are not in attendance. Of course, you’re also welcome to dream up a project that interests your employees and chances are we may have a “fit.” If you’d like to talk about any of these possibilities or others, contact our Director of Community Engagement using the form below:
