This article is about a guy who’s all bent out of shape about Friends of Scouting. I’ve collected Friends of Scouting for 15 years. I’ve heard all the comments. Two of the most common are:
- Does any of this money go to the young women?
- Does this money stay local?
I don’t know all the places that the money goes but I know that it’s not that much money. A member making $50,000 a year will pay $5,000 in tithing. On top of that they will likely pay several hundred more in fast offerings. Nevertheless, giving $50 to Friends of Scouting sends them over the edge.
