Consider the great investment opportunities: gold, real estate, stocks and bonds, and BOY SCOUTS. Yes, the Boy Scouts. Other investment opportunities lose their luster; their value declines according to the whims of an unpredictable market. But the worth of the Boy Scouts never declines – it is an investment that always appreciates and always pays dividends because the Boy Scouts invests in people.
For over a century, the Boy Scouts of America has been teaching young people fundamental lessons in life, and developing enlightened, responsible citizens by instilling the timeless values of trustworthiness and loyalty, helpfulness and friendliness, cheerfulness, courage and kindness. Yet like all good investments, the Boy Scouts need contributions now to reap a golden harvest in the future.
Endowment emphasis and stewardship is one of the five critical issues of the Boy Scouts of America. Realizing that the future of Scouting is dependent on a sound financial foundation, the development of an adequate endowment fund is vital to the long-range fiscal stability of a local council.
The Greater New York Councils, Boy Scouts of America Endowment Trust Fund exists to ensure the councils’ long-term financial health.
