Endowment Support

Welcome to the Endowment Portfolio for Scouting. This tool aims to provide you with necessary information for administering your council’s endowments. The information on this page was put together by volunteers addressing the concerns for their particular councils. Each council should consult legal and accounting advisers as guidelines can vary by state.

The portfolio addresses:


  • Management
  • Donor Cultivation
  • Legal Instruments
  • Administration and Accounting
  • Financial Instruments
  • Marketing
  • Journey to Excellence

and case studies of particular types of council endowments.

The portfolio will be updated regularly for your benefit with new topics and case studies as needed to further your efforts.

We thank you for your interest and commitment to build upon your council’s future growth.
