Oregon Trail Council's Development Department will work closely and confidentially with you and your financial advisers to ensure that your gift achieves your individual goals and expresses your personal vision for the Boy Scouts of America.
When you support the Oregon Trail Council, you can choose from a number of convenient ways to make a gift. Often, the type of gift you wish to make will determine the techniques available to you. Also, depending on the type of gift and the technique used, special tax and financial benefits can result.
Designating your Gift
Through a gift, you might create a campership so the success you now enjoy is made possible for others. Or your interests might lie in enhancing summer camp, Scoutreach, training, or a specific program within the council. Your gift can be an individual expression of your vision and goals.
As you begin to define your goals, there are some questions you might consider: What are my personal objectives and needs? What are my financial goals? What is the best asset to use to make my gift? Which gift plans can best accomplish my goals for my family and the Boy Scouts of America?
