Governor's Luncheon for Scouting | Crossroads of America Council, BSA

25th Annual Governor’s Luncheon for Scouting


A huge thanks to our over 1,800 supporters, including attendees of the inaugural Terre Haute satellite event, who contributed to the luncheon on December 12, 2019 in Indianapolis—not to mention our Facebook Live followers! Together, we raised we raised $1,054,638 to support Scouting programs in Central Indiana, which secures half of our 2020 Friends of Scouting campaign needs. Our donor gifts grew by $30,000 this year resulting in two consecutive years of event growth and a total of $50,000 growth, which allows us to continue to be the largest “Governor’s Luncheon for Scouting” fundraiser in the country. You are part of a thriving team! Our council is a separate 501(c)(3) from the national council, including separate financials and governing boards, so each dollar you contribute stays in Central Indiana.

We are truly grateful for a strong outpouring of interest and commitment to the life-changing work we do to reach more than 35,000 youth, 7,500 adult volunteers and 800 community partners in 26 counties. To see photos of the amazing program, please visit our council’s Facebook or Flickr page.

Thank you again for your support of the Crossroads of America Council, Boy Scouts of America programs. We would not be able to offer our outstanding programs without your support!
