Merit Badge Sponsor


Why Sponsor a Merit Badge?


Since 1911, merit badges have been the cornerstone of the Boy Scouts of America and your support makes two significant contributions to that tradition.

By sharing your personal and professional enthusiasm for a Merit Badge, you provide honest proof that the skills Scouts learn truly last a lifetime, often leading to careers or lifelong interests. Furthermore, your gift allows for us to continue the adventures of Scouting by supporting advancement, offering training, and putting on the very programs that are synonymous with Scouting.

Last year our Council recognized the efforts of our young men by awarding 3,991 merit badges, and thanks to your interest and commitment, this next year will be even more remarkable. Thank you again for sharing your enthusiasm and your support.
