Scouting is thriving in our area! More young people and families than ever before are taking advantage of Scouting’s time-tested, values-driven program! Delivered by top-quality local leaders and with the support of community organizations, these future community leaders are receiving the tools to help them succeed in life. The Mustang District is an integral part of the nation’s finest Scouting programs.
In order to provide these high quality programs, a strong base of financial strength is needed.. A solid source of income serves as the foundation for the quality Scouting programs upon which Mustang District builds.
The Mustang District is conducting its annual Friends of Scouting campaign. Our goal this year is $60,000. This effort is necessary to raise the additional funds above and beyond what the United Way and other income sources provide, making up the council’s largest single source of income.
Your Help is especially needed this year. While parents of Scouts do provide financial support to the cost of delivering Scouting to our communities, the expense of owning and maintaining camps, employing a full-time staff, and delivering Scouting's programs also requires community "cost-sharing" and a "5% increase" in most years.

The Volunteer Incentive Program recognizes employees' contribution of time and talent to nonprofit organizations located in their community or surrounding areas. Under the program, employees are eligible to apply for a grant on behalf of the qualified organization where they volunteered 50 hours or more during the year. The Foundation rewards these employee volunteers with a $750 check for presentation to the designated organization. Employees may request VIP grants on behalf of two separate organizations for a total of $1,500 each year.
