Make a difference through a donation
The generous donations of our community members and Scouting family enable the Glacier's Edge Council of the Boy Scouts of America to give young people the chance to have fun, gain confidence, and become leaders who live the Scout Oath and the Scout Law.
The Boy Scouts of America has been shaping the lives of our youth since 1910. Scouting exists because of the volunteer and financial support provided by the community. The best way to support the Boy Scouts of America financially is by making a contribution directly to the Glacier's Edge Council.
By giving to your local BSA council, you are directly supporting Scouting programs where you live — programs that clean up your parks, gather food for the area needy and even help your community prepare for disaster. The Glacier's Edge Council is funded by a variety of sources, including: direct contributions, events, annual popcorn sale, foundation grants, the United Way and program/activity/camping fees. With your support, we can bring the nation’s highest quality Scouting programs to many more youth throughout South-Central Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.

AmazonSmile - Your purchases can support Scouting!
As if you needed another excuse to shop at Amazon. Now every purchase you make from the Earth’s biggest online store can support the Glacier's Edge Council. Through its AmazonSmile program, introduced in 2014, Amazon donates 0.5 percent of the price of your eligible purchase to the public charitable organization of your choice.
Sure, half a percent isn’t much and won’t replace your Friends of Scouting contributions that help Scouting function in your community. But it adds up, costs you nothing and is a great additional way to support Scouting. The one-time setup takes just a couple of seconds, and you get the same prices, products and service you’re used to when shopping at Amazon. It doesn’t cost you any extra; the only difference is now you’re helping Scouting every time you buy.

Scouting and United Way Support
As a founding agency of the United Way, the Boy Scouts of America greatly appreciates the support that has been extended to Boy Scout councils across the country. For many decades, United Way funding has helped the BSA bring the Scouting programs to underprivileged youth, introduce new programs, and broaden the existing program.
The Glacier's Edge Council works with six United Ways in the territory that make up the council. Funding from all Untied Way partners is approximately 4% of the total budget. The Glacier's Edge Council staff and volunteers support their local United Way campaigns in communities where they live and work. Support is both in the form of financial and volunteer time.
