Why should you invest in The Boy Scouts of America?
In general, people invest in companies because they believe in a product or service. Investors want to know that their investment will pay dividends and the merit of membership of the Boy Scouts of America has been proven for almost 100 years. Scouting has afforded numerous young men with a positive social and educational environment based upon the high ideals of the Boy Scouts of America. Your investment in Scouting will ensure that future generations will also have the opportunities and benefits that have contributed greatly to society.
Today, Scouting continues to provide a proven learning environment that prepares our members for the challenges that they face now, and those that they will overcome in the future.
Who pays for Scouting?
Have you wondered who pays for Scouting? The Cimarron Council's largest source of income is through gifts from the families and communities we serve. Your gift will benefit the youth, families, and leaders of the Cimarron Council by providing a full time professional staff to provide assistance to unit leaders with unit relations, administrative and operational problems. The staff also provides guidance to all committees, commissioners, conferences, training courses, and activities in the development of programs that directly benefit youth, families, and leaders. In addition to the professional staff, the council employs a support staff to assist with operations in the Scout Shop and Council Service Center.
The Cimarron Council operates three camping facilities, Sundance Scout Camp near Bison, Will Rogers Scout Reservation near Cleveland, and Williams Scout Reservation near Cleo Springs. The camps are used by Scouting units and various other groups throughout the year.
