The Appalachian Trail (AT) District encourages and relies on your support in many ways. Financial support is one of those ways.
Each year the AT District participates in two major fundraising campaigns: the Friends of Scouting and popcorn sales programs. An overview of Friends of Scouting follows. Consider how Scouting benefits you, your family and your community. We value your commitment to and support of our Scouting program.
To make a donation, participate in our next campaign, or share your thoughts and questions, please contact our District Chair, Rick Rogers.
The Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign is conducted annually among the parents of Scouts, Scout volunteer leadership, employees of the Council, and the communities in which Scouting is located. Families and Scout volunteers are the first to see the benefit of Scouting for youth and local communities often benefit through Scout service projects.
Generous financial support from individuals, corporations and community partners is critical. This support makes all the difference, ensuring the quality of our programs as well as making sure the Scouting program is available for any child or family who wants to be involved.

Leadership. Citizenship. Strong character, values and morals. Healthy living habits. Respect for the great outdoors. Scouting offers tangible ideals to today’s young people. As a Council – as a community – let’s celebrate and support Scouting’s impact today and ensure its every tomorrow.
