Friends of Scouting
Delivering Scouting for Cub Scout Pack 1776 takes a partnership of programs and funding from our families, units with community partners, and the Grand Canyon Council.
Camping facilities, maintenance, programs, recruitment materials, training, and year-round staff support are some of the responsibilities and costs we work to fund.
The Grand Canyon Council, is proud to share that 84% of total expenses directly support the program!
Fundraising accounts for 8% of council expenses, much of that is the cost of prizes and incentives given to our youth for participating in our annual popcorn and camp card fundraisers
Management expenses are 7% of council budget
Only 1% of our council expenses are paid to the National Council Boy Scouts of America for various services and support. The other 99% is used locally for our communities!
