Group of Scouts with leader - cropAre your looking for a charity or non profit organization to support or to partner with as part of your CSI strategy?

For decades the South African Scouting programmes have shaped the lives and unleashed the potential of thousands of boys and girls and young men and women. Today, with over 300 000 members, Scouting still sets the bar when it comes to contemporary value based youth programmes. Skills such as outdoor survival, first aid, citizenship, leadership as well as team work set members up for success. With 94% of our membership residing in rural and disadvantaged areas SCOUTS South Africa is a Level 1 BEE accredited non profit.

How to give to Scouting?

You can also contribute towards the sustainability of the Scouting Movement by donating or be-questing towards our endowment fund through our ‘Friends of Scouting’ programme.

Friends of Scouting

One of our Scout Laws speaks of managing all resources thrifty. Therefore – unless otherwise specified – monetary donations and bequests made to SCOUTS South Africa are kept in an endowment fund managed by the independent SCOUT Foundation and the donating individual or company becomes a member of the prestigious “Friends of Scouting” Programme.

Help us unleash the potential of our youth and join the “Friends of Scouting” Programme here!
