A will makes a statement about what matters in your life. Many supporters include a meaningful gift to the council to continue their lifetime support

The pledge is a simple, written agreement between you and your local council that commits you to an amount to be paid by a date that you choose.

Living Trust
Many people use this trust to organize personal finances, provide for family members and make gifts to Scouting.

Retirement Plan Designations
With the growth in retirement and pension plans, many people now choose to designate their favorite charities as beneficiaries of any excess, or remaining, retirement funds.

Charitable Lead Trusts
Maintain wealth while giving income.

Endow Now Program
A substantial gift for a modest investment.

Life Insurance
Life insurance is a convenient way to make a future gift to Scouting with a minimum investment. Some donors make a gift of new, paid-up policies or existing ones that are no longer needed.


Donations become a part of the permanent endowment of the Evangeline Area Council Endowment Fund. Your tribute will benefit the youth of our communities forever.
