Friends of Scouting (FOS)

Donate Now to Our Friends of Scouting Annual Giving Drive

Friends of Scouting is the annual fund drive that makes the Scouting program possible for 3,200 Scouts on Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, and Oahu, as well as in Guam and American Samoa. Your gift of any amount helps young people to build confidence and leadership skills while enjoying our beautiful islands.

Without your support, we would not be able to provide one of the most successful and popular youth development programs in the country.
