Friends of Scouting

Friends of Scouting (FOS) is an annual campaign that provides financial support to our local Council: Blackhawk Area Council, Rockford, Illinois. This support comes from a pledge or donation by a company, organization or individual. National Boy Scouts of America gives councils program support, but not financial support, so each council must raise all its own funds to support its operating budget. Your pledge to FOS helps support that budget.
