On Giving Tuesday, give our Scouts the tools they need to succeed

Today’s world needs more individuals who have been given the foundations needed for leadership, service, good citizenship, strong moral behavior, and a healthy work ethic—so that they not only contribute to society but are adequately prepared for whatever uncertainties the future may bring. 
Through rigorous yet rewarding activities, learning new skills, making memories with friends and family, outdoor adventures, conversations with leaders, and other one-of-a-kind experiences, Scouting helps build strong moral character. 
As you know, Scouting also teaches young people to confront any challenge wholeheartedly—to live their lives without regret, to never back down, and to do their very best. 
 But to continue this critical work of equipping the Scouts we know and love, we need your help. 
  We are looking for Rainbow Council Scouts, volunteers, parents, and leaders who want to see Scouting thrive. We are looking for those who want to see their kids discover a love of serving others and learn how to lead through hard work. 
So, we are asking for your financial support, on behalf of the children in our community who need Scouting. We’re asking you to help build the heroes of tomorrow by investing in the Scouts of today with a Giving Tuesday donation. 
Your Giving Tuesday donation will support all that Scouting offers, from the challenges of knot-tying to the life-changing experiences of a Jamboree. But that’s not all. Your gift also helps: 
Parents who want to give their kids a strong moral compass. 
Employers near you who are looking for hardworking young people who aren’t intimidated by challenges. 
Our community that depends on responsible citizens and leaders of integrity. 
Your Giving Tuesday gift will keep Rainbow Council strong and help it grow to serve even more families. 
Please make your gift before midnight on Giving Tuesday in order to equip our young people in the development of critical life skills and set them on a path to becoming the next generation of heroes. 
You can make your Giving Tuesday contribution using the secure form below. 

What Is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Why Should I Give on #GivingTuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a great way to really show that you care about impacting local youth in your community by supporting local Scouting programs. Scouting not only helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives, they also get to try new things, teaches them how to provide service to others and build self-confidence.

Other reasons on why you should give on Giving Tuesday are that giving provides satisfaction, it is tax-deductible, a little bit goes a long way, and you can make a difference in a child’s life!
