Support Scouting

Scouting receives its funding through a variety of broad categories including popcorn sales, camping revenues, activities, event sponsorships, and direct donations from people and businesses like you. Thanks to you and your generosity, LaSalle Council has maintained Scouting on a balanced budget and carried no long-term debt for over 15 years.

General Donation

Your investment in LaSalle Council changes lives. That might sound like an exaggeration, but not to the over 7,000 boys and girls participating in programs throughout the council. Each day, they build self-confidence and learn to be leaders. There are few greater gifts you can give to a young person, than the chance to develop their leadership and character to their full potential.

The LaSalle Council operates and maintains over 800 acres of land through three camp facilities - Camp ToPeNeBee, Wood Lake Scout Reservation (aka Camp Tamarack) and Rice Woods Camp. The council provides rangers, equipment and supplies to maintain these camp areas so they are ready for summer camps, day camps, weekend camping, and other outdoor activities. The Council provides program and training materials for both youth and adult leaders, organizes high adventure trips, maintains the camp facilities for use, and provides dedicated scouting professional executives to serve and support units throughout the council.
