Perpetuating Scouting's Future

Maintaining and expanding our program outreach to youth will become increasingly difficult in the years ahead. Innovative and relevant programs to attract and hold youth will require new and increased financial support. Funding from traditional sources becomes more challenging each year. In response to this challenge, the council is committed to further develop and expand the endowment trust fund. The desired outcome to produce increased operating income from this source. This fund, which is permanent and professionally managed, is restricted in order that the principal remains in perpetuity, with earned income used annually for support of program.


The Hawk Mountain Council has a strong commitment to ensure the financial support of Scouting, long into the future. Through the establishment of a permanent endowment fund the volunteer Executive Board has provided a vehicle that will provide income to the annual budget without ever decreasing permanent gifts made to this fund.  

For the donor, a gift to endowment says, "Scouting is important to me and my family." It says that Scouting truly is a movement with a mission for me. It is more than an organization; it is a way of life. It is what we say and do in the spirit of the Scout Oath and Law. The Hawk Mountain Council Endowment exists to ensure the council's long-term financial health. Donor's gifts remain in perpetuity and only the interest and/or earnings are used to fund our operations.
