Scouting and United Way Support

As a founding agency of the United Way, the Boy Scouts of America greatly appreciates the support that has been extended to Boy Scout councils across the country. For many decades, United Way funding has helped the BSA bring the Scouting programs to underprivileged youth, introduce new programs, and broaden the existing program.

The Glacier’s Edge Council works with five United Ways in the territory that make up the council. Funding from all Untied Way partners is approximately 4% of the total budget. The Glacier’s Edge Council staff and volunteers support their local United Way campaigns in communities where they live and work.  Support is both in the form of financial and volunteer time. See below for a complete list of United Way partners.  Click on the links to learn more about the communities and needs they serve.

In this year’s United Way campaign, the Glacier’s Edge Council – Boy Scouts of America will be one of the organizations listed to receive designated gifts. This is amazing news and will allow United Way participants in Dane County to allocate all or a portion of their contribution to support the mission of Scouting.
