Mini Grants Available to Boost Troop Membership

Thanks to an anonymous donor, the Cascade Pacific Council is pleased to invite your troop to apply for a mini grant to aid you in your efforts to recruit new youth into your Boy Scout troop. The purpose of the mini grants is to build and sustain strong Scout troops by reaching out to youth not currently involved in Scouting. Our grants are meant to encourage creative thinking beyond a troops “normal” recruitment of Webelos Scouts. A total of $10,000 in mini grants will be provided to local troops that are selected through a competitive process. Grants will range from $100 up to $1,000 each. We plan to give priority to ideas that: • Target non-Scouting youth per the donor’s interest. • Reflect a comprehensive troop-wide approach to engaging parents and youth in recruiting other families into Scouting. • Serve as models that can later be adopted by other troops This RFP is for one-time, short-term (one year maximum) recruitment campaign that is completed between June 1 and October 31, 2013.
