Consider joining a select group of volunteers and supporters of
Scouting in New York City by joining the Councils 1% Club.

What is the 1% Club and how does it benefit Scouting?
The 1% Club is simply an opportunity for the Council to plant the
seed of thought for you and members of your family to remember
Scouting in your Will & Estate Plan.
Over the years, you have expressed a desire to support Scouting
on an annual basis. The support is truly appreciated and is critical
to our mission to serve youth in New York City. But, what will
happen to your annual support of Scouting after you depart this
By including the Greater New York Councils, Boy Scouts of
America as one of the charitable organizations in your Will and
Estate Plan, your donated assets will be placed in a Restricted
Endowed Trust Fund along with the gifts of other dedicated
Scouters, generating interest which will be used annually in the
Councils operation. Thus, your annual support will continue to
benefit generations of youth long after your passing and establish
your legacy to New York City youth. In fact, depending upon the
amount (or percent) you leave to Scouting, the Council will
establish an Endowment Fund in your name perpetuating you as
a supporter of Scouting.
