The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For nearly a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through nearly a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
The Investment That Lasts a Lifetime
For nearly 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America has been a volunteer-based, fee-driven organization, with close to 50 million living alumni having been through its programs. This model has served the organization well and has allowed us to become one of the most iconic brands in American culture. However, like many organizations today, whether a nonprofit or for-profit, the BSA realizes a more diverse revenue engagement model is good for business and provides a more sustainable financial base from which to continue its good works in communities across the country.
Anchored in the vision of building long-term, strategic, and integrated alliances with corporations willing to support the BSA’s mission, the Corporate Alliances team is poised to position the organization for continued success. This team identifies strategies and cultivates relationships that develop revenue and resources to support national initiatives and grassroots programs that ultimately reach local councils and Scouting families.
The Scouting program is available to United States citizens and their dependents living in other countries. The Transatlantic Council is headquartered in Germany and serves U.S. Scouts in most of Europe. The Far East Council is headquartered in Japan and serves several Far East nations. Direct Service serves all other BSA Scouts living outside the United States.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Ways to Engage
Companies interested in establishing mutually beneficial strategic alliances with the Boy Scouts of America may do so through sponsorship opportunities (e.g., consumer cause-marketing/branding, PR, employee involvement), access to BSA supporters and marketing channels, opportunities to host/participate in events and/or promotions, and recognition visibility in our award-winning magazines (readership of 10+ million people). Naturally, higher-level sponsors enjoy greater rights and benefits, with each level being determined by contractually guaranteed minimum cash contributions and mission-critical in-kind commitments.
