Scouts in the greater St. Louis area council rely on the generosity of individuals, sponsors, organizations and charitable donors to help them grow into the next generation of leaders.

Over the past 100 years, Scouting has laid the foundation for millions of youth to reach their potential. With your help, we can ensure that today’s Scouts continue to become tomorrow’s leaders. The Greater St. Louis Area Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your donations are fully tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a nation-wide, one-day, online campaign to support non-profit organizations amidst the commercialism of the holidays. This campaign is designed to attract new donors through peer-to-peer fundraising. You can find out more about this grassroots effort here.

When you donate to the Greater St. Louis Area Council on Giving Tuesday, you are helping local youth grow to become citizens who are helpful, passionate, loyal, trustworthy, and brave.

Take the time today, and change a child’s future by helping them become a Scout!


There are multiple ways to support Scouting in our region this Giving Tuesday.  To donate to the general Greater St. Louis Area Council campaign text “STLBSA20” to 71777.

You can also give local by donating directly to your local district’s campaign.  Simply text your district’s code to 71777 to go to their donation page.  (Mobile users, tap your district’s code and that will auto populate a SMS message with your district’s code.)

Donate Today

Scouting instills the character, values and skills that our youth need to take on the future. Your charitable donation is more than a gift to the Scouts — it’s an investment in the success of your community and in the future of the world.

Friends of Scouting

Friends of Scouting (FOS) is the annual giving campaign of the Greater St. Louis Area Council. The FOS campaign provides 22% of the Council budget every year. That means nearly a quarter of every dollar in the council budget comes from the generosity of Scouting families, alumni and community supporters. Without this funding, our council could not provide the resources necessary to provide a quality, adventure-filled scouting program.
