Introduction

When we come together to make sure that no youth is left behind, all youth are given access to the Scouting experience, and a chance to build a positive future for themselves and the world.

It Starts with Scouts.

 

When a donation is made to Scouts Canada where does the money go?

Registration fees only cover a portion of the cost to deliver a quality Scouting program. With registration fees set at $230 per year, our net membership revenue per youth is $207. But the cost to support a quality Scouting program is actually $260 per youth. Here’s how fee revenue is allocated.

How to donate in the name of an organization (corporate donations)?

We work with our corporate partners to find Scouting programs and initiatives that resonate with their business and community investment goals, building healthy and mutually beneficial relationships.

To join Scouts Canada as a corporate partner and work together to build the future for our youth and Canada.

Groups do fundraisers why are donations needed?

Fundraisers are traditionally organized by Groups to fund Group activities whereas donations to the No One Left Behind program go towards covering the costs of Scouting for youth from low-income households & provide the opportunity for all youth to have great safe Scouting adventures!

 

Are donations tax refundable?

Yes! Donations of $20 or more are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
