Each year your local council establishes a budget to provide unit service, administration, training, outdoor and camping facilities, and quality program activities in the continuing effort to serve more boys.  Just as your pack raises funds for pack operation through den dues and money-earning projects, the council raises funds for council operation through the United Way and/or other methods.


Many council conduct an annual Friends of Scouting, or FOS, to provide opportunities for parents, Scouters, and friends of Scouting to financially support the growth of the Scouting program.  By enrolling as a Friend of Scouting and supporting your local United Way you can be helpful in providing financial resources for your local council and be helpful in interpreting to parents why the council conducts an FOS campaign.


At registration time each year the pack indicates on its charter application the committee member who will be responsible during the FOS campaign, which is usually held in the spring.
