Your Gift Makes a Difference!
The commitment of the Sam Houston Area Council is that every youth, regardless of situation, can be a Scout. By making a meaningful gift, you enable our volunteers to recruit more youth and families to a world-class Scouting program right here in Southeast Texas.
The true cost of Scouting is much higher than what most people realize. Consider all of the costs incurred by the council in order to deliver the most impactful program.
Friends of Scouting is an opportunity for families, friends, alumni, business and community organizations to support Scouting.
