2019 Scouting Alumni & Friends INNOVATION GRANT
2019 GRANT CYCLE IS NOW OPEN

DESCRIPTION:
The National Scouting Alumni and Friends Committee has developed this innovation grant opportunity to assist local councils in the recruitment of former Scouts and Scouters to a council, district, unit or other alumni roles. Special consideration will be given to councils that plan innovative ways to recruit un-engaged alumni, not just registered Scouters.
