Financial Support Opportunities

There are several ways to financially contribute to the youth and operations of Greenwich Scouting.  If you are interested in any of the below options, please contact Craig Jones to discuss them in further detail.

Planned Giving
Planned giving is a vital part of financial development of our Council.  Planned giving is charitable support with a pre-established plan which benefits the donor and the donor's family, and also helps the Boy Scouts of America further its work.  Gift options include bequests, life estate, retirement plan beneficiary designation, charitable remainder trusts, living trust and life insurance.

Matching Gifts
Many companies will "match" their employee's donation.   To see an initial list of companies known to have this policy, contact the Greenwich Council or check with your human resources department for the appropriate paperwork.

Stock Donations

One way to perpetuate your legacy in Scouting is to make a donation of stock. Stocks can be used to enhance the endowment funds of the council and also reduce your tax liability.  Download Stock Donation Form

Endowment Gifts
The Greenwich Council, Boy Scouts of America, Inc. Endowment Fund is one of the three funds of local Scouting. The other two are Operating and Capital. Gifts can be made to the Endowment Fund through several methods and programs including the Scouting Heritage Society.  The Heritage Society is a program to recognize those who include Scouting in their estate planning or make outright gifts to the Endowment of the Greenwich Council, such as the James E. West Fellowship Award, the 1910 Society and the Boy Scouts of America Founders Circle.  Each of these programs has specific requirements for donations.
