How We Are Funded

Our Council is Funded Through Community Support and Fundraisers

The communities we serve recognize the importance of the work we do. Bringing the values of Scouting to life (like everything else) requires money. Because we strive to keep Scouting affordable for everyone, we often turn to our community partners for support. South Florida Council is honored by the generous support of all our funding partners.
