2024 Sam Houston Area Council Friends of Scouting Campaign- Building Your Future

George Strake District



The George Strake District serves Scouting units in all of Conroe ISD and Willis ISD, which serve Conroe, Willis, Spring, The Woodlands, Oak Ridge and Shenandoah.

Friends of Scouting is the Sam Houston Area Council’s annual campaign for individuals and companies to make a 100% tax-deductible gift to support Scouting programs.  The Sam Houston Area Council will invest over $250 in each of our more than 28,000 youth in 2024 alone.  By making an investment in this campaign you are supporting families who are in need of financial assistance in order to participate, five year-round facilities including four camping properties and the Cockrell Scout Center, and an infrastructure designed to support over 8,000 adult volunteers who bring Scouting to life. Friends of Scouting is the most cost-effective way to support Scouting programs.

Matching Gifts: Many corporations match employee contributions made to the Boy Scouts of America. Some companies even make financial contributions for volunteering time to Scouting, check with your employer to see if your time and contribution could be matched!
