Becoming a Companion
The Northern Lights Scout Foundation exists to provide financial support for the Scouting movement across Northern Lights Council. The Foundation accepts donations from anyone interested in helping ensure that Scouting will always be here for youth across the Northern Lights area. These donations are invested by the Foundation and the interest from these investments is used to support specific Scouting activities.
The Companion to the Scout Foundation program is a unique and prestigious program where special recognition is provided as a result of a significant donation ($1000) to the Foundation.
The Companion program operates in two ways:
1. The donation can be made by an individual who wishes to make a lasting and tangible contribution to the Foundation, and Scouting, in his or her name.
2. The donation can be made by others in the name of someone who they feel has made a significant contribution of time and talent to Scouting.
This is an excellent way for a group to provide special recognition to someone who has gone that extra mile for Scouting. The Companion will be presented with a specially crafted medallion, pin and parchment at a meaningful event. Both the recipient and his or her guest will be hosted as special guests. Charitable donation receipts are provided to each individual contributor.
To recognize a volunteer at the 2014 Honours and Awards Ceremony, please submit your nomination and donations to the Northern Lights Council office no later than April 30th, 2014.
