Blue & Gold FOS Reminder- Feb 15th

Dear Cub Scout Parent,

This is a brief reminder that in support of the Friends of Scouting (FOS) program, we will be passing out a FOS brochure/pledge card explaining how your FOS dollars benefits the program. There are several ways to invest in Scouting:

  • You may give with a check
  • You may charge your Visa or MasterCard by including your card number and expiration date on the pledge card
  • You may make a pledge in which case the council will send a pledge reminder in the month you indicate on the pledge card

If you intend to pay by check, please bring your checkbook to the Blue & Gold as we will be collecting the pledge cards the same evening. If you do not intend to participate, please put down zero as the pledge amount, as we need to collect all the cards that are handed out.

Here is an example of the pledge card you will be receiving.

On behalf of the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council and Pack 1776, we thank you for your support.

Friends of Scouting (FOS) Campaign – Feb 15th

Dear Cub Scout Parent,

We hope that you and your family will be able to join us at our Blue & Gold Banquet scheduled for February 15th at 5:30pm at the Coyote Creek MPR. We are very proud of all the boy’s achievements and extremely appreciative of all the parental involvement.

During the banquet, we will be making a brief presentation of the annual Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign and then asking for your pledges to support our Pack’s FOS effort. The FOS program helps underwrite the cost of Scouting for our district, the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council. We thought it might be beneficial to send out this letter in advance for your information.

Each year, our Scout parents are asked to support some of the hidden costs of Scouting. The Mt. Diablo Silverado Council, which serves almost 17,000 youths, provides numerous benefits to all of our boys and adult volunteers. A few of these benefits include subsidized Cub Day Camp and Cub Family Camps, maintaining facilities such as Camp Herms and Wolfeboro, as well as youth and leadership training.

FOS provides these benefits to our Scouts throughout the bay area. The district’s goal is to raise $120,000 for this year. In the past, parents have contributed gifts ranging from $10 to $1,000. The Scouting organization annually spends about $200 per boy while the registration fee is only $15. The Council hopes that each family will give enough to offset the spending cost for each boy, but if your family cannot contribute to this extent, please know that any amount is welcome. Participation by every family, at any level, is the goal.

If you believe that the Scouting program has had a positive impact on your family, I urge you to join me in this effort to keep the Scout program the dynamic experience for the youth in our area.
