Tukabatchee Area Council #005

Support Scouting



Friends of Scouting - FOS is an annual fundraising drive of the Tukabatchee Area Council encompassing all 14 of our counties. This direct solicitation drive raises just more than 42% of the council's operating revenues and provides for council camps, equipment, new unit organization, liability insurance and many more of the items required to assure quality Scouting in central Alabama. Currently more than 2,500 friends enroll annually in this largest fundraising campaign.
Donations may be made online. By entering a zip code in our council, donations will go to our council. If you are not local and do not know a zip code, use 36111. 

The Tukabatchee Area Council has established a trust or endowment for the long-term benefit of Scouting in central Alabama. Most gifts of the trust are made through planned giving (wills, trusts, etc.) and are recognized by membership in the council's "Heritage Society." Richard P. "Dick" Morthland is the endowment chairman.

For additional planned giving information contact Denise Miller at the council service center or visit the national planned giving site.

 

The James E. West Award is presented to individuals based on a contribution of $1000 or more to the local council's West Fellowship Fund. Only registered Scouters or youth members receive and wear the square knot.

The money may be given by a group of Scouters or individual Scouter to honor a fellow Scouter, as a memorial on the death of a Scouter, or to recognize an achievement. The award can also be given to an individual who makes a contribution on his/her own behalf. Regardless of the source of funding, the award is used by BSA to generate funds to support critical local Council and national programs. Contact Mr. Bill Morgan at the council service center for information on how to donate.

Through his extended Scouting family, John Dowe had a positive effect on the lives of young people across the nation for over seventy years.  John believed deeply in the benefits of Scouting and the Order of the Arrow as these organizations provided challenges and positive role models, peer groups and effective methods that continue to instill values.  In 2009, a fund was created to award post-high school education scholarships for Tukabatchee Area Council young adults.

The Tukabatchee Area Council offers an individually numbered council shoulder patch. These CSPs are $50 each and all of the proceeds go to camp improvement projects at Warner Scout Reservation. Contact Denise Miller at the council service center to purchase one.
