Thank you for supporting the thousands of youth and families the Cradle of Liberty Council serves throughout Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery Counties. Your investment in youth helps build tomorrow’s leaders and participating citizens right here in our area.

Support Scouting

Annual Campaign

Invest in Character

Our Annual Campaign provides individuals and businesses with an opportunity to support the programs and facilities of the Cradle of Liberty Council with a non-restricted gift, either recurring monthly as a member of the Liberty Society or a one-time gift. Your investment stays local to support Scouting right here in

Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery Counties. The true cost of Scouting is much greater than what local dues or event and camping fees cover. The Annual Campaign gives individuals and businesses the opportunity to contribute to the Cradle of Liberty Council at a level of their own choosing according to their interest and ability to give.

Special Events

Discover the endless opportunities to support Scouting with Special Events at Cradle of Liberty Council.  If you’re looking for ways to give back to Scouting, attending special events is a great way to show your support. From golf and shooting events, to investment opportunities, there are many ways to get involved. You can even celebrate the achievements of our “Good Scout” Award recipients.

Endowment & Giving Societies

Encouraging gifts to the endowment fund is one of Scouting’s highest priorities. It is one of the best ways to ensure that the Cradle of Liberty Council can continue to offer the outstanding programs it now has long into the future and also grow to meet the needs of the youth and communities it serves.
