- About CAC
Practically all of our council’s annual budget is raised through individual donors’ gifts, fees collected from our camps and activities, our annual popcorn sale, our Scout Shop sales, plus generous support from foundations and trusts. 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.
Underwriting for these events makes it possible for 100% of all dollars raised to go directly to Scouting programs in Central Texas. If your company would like to know more about any of these events, please contact our Development Director at (contact form?)

Why Should Your Company Give To Scouting?
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 Give
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 at (contact form?)
While financial donations give us the greatest amount of flexibility in administering the Scouting program across all 15 counties we serve, there are some in-kind material donations that would make a big difference in us maximizing our donors’ dollars. You can find a list of these desired in-kind donation items below.
If you’re interested in helping us through a donation of any of these items, please contact our Director of Support Service at (contact form?)
Fundraising Event Sponsorships
Our council conducts three major fundraising events each year: the Step Up For Scouting Leadership Luncheon, the Sporting Clays Classic, and the Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner.
Step Up For Scouting Leadership Luncheon – a weekday luncheon in downtown Austin that attracts 500-600 of the top professionals from all industries. Keynote speakers for this event in the past have included former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Warburg-Pincus co-CEO Joseph Landy, Navy SEAL Rear Adm. Scott Moore, Admiral Bobby Inman, STRATFOR founder George Friedman, Texas Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick, and more.
Sporting Clays Classic – the original charity clays shoot in Central Texas! The event draws nearly 50 teams each fall to test their aim in friendly competition on multiple shooting courses, enjoy a catered dinner, and take part in a live auction for hunting and fishing trips, vacation stays, and accessories for the outdoorsman.
Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner – this gala event annually honors to individuals who share Scouting’s belief in leadership, determination and values, and have contributed significantly to the growth and vitality of Central Texas. Past recipients include Frost Bank President Tim Crowley, Attorney/Philanthropist Tim Taylor, Endeavor Real Estate co-founder David Roche, University of Texas System Chancellor William McRaven, Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp, former University of Texas President Bill Powers, former Governor Rick Perry, Texas Disposal Systems co-founders Bob and Jim Gregory, former University of Texas Men’s Athletics Director DeLoss Dodds, past Greater Austin Economic Development Corporation Chair Gary Farmer, Philanthropists Pete and Tomi Winstead, and former Austin Mayor Gus Garcia. Funds from the Award dinner benefit nearly 600 Scouting programs across 15 Central Texas counties serving youth regardless of ability or economic level.
