Northern Lights Scout Foundation

The Northern Lights Scout Foundation provides financial support for Scouting in Northern Lights Council from the revenues generated by the investments which it holds for this purpose. The Foundation’s holdings have been acquired over many years through fund raising, donations and bequests. These investments provide an ongoing stream of income for the operation of the Council.

All registered Scouters in Northern Lights Council are Associate Members of the Foundation. Members pay no dues. Members are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting in November each year. The affairs of the Foundation are administered by a Board of Directors elected at the Annual General Meeting.

The Foundation is a registered charity and issues income tax deductible receipts for all donations made to the Foundation.

A donor making a contribution of $1000 or more is recognized by a Companion of the Foundation medal. A donor, or donors, may also nominate another Scouting volunteer to receive the Companion of the Foundation Medal.

All persons who have informed the Foundation that they have included a bequest to the Foundation in their will become members of the Founder’s Circle.
