Give youth in our community the opportunity to experience Scouting by supporting the Pony Express Council, Boy Scouts of America.
Financial resources for the local council come from an annual Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign, local United Ways, foundation, grants, special events, project sales, investment income, trust funds, bequests, and gifts of real and personal property.
These funds provide for professional staff support, the organization of new Scouting units, service for existing units, training of volunteer leaders, and maintenance of council camp. They also finance the operation of the local council service center, where volunteer leaders can obtain literature, insignia, advancement badges, and other items vital to the program. In addition, the service center maintains advancement and membership records.
