Friends of Scouting Fundraiser - Schedule Your Presentation Soon!

Hello ODD Friends,


My name is Dawn Greenwood. I am the District Executive for the Old Dominion District within the National Capital Council Boy Scouts of America. Today and this week, I am reaching out to everyone in the ODD to ask for continued support with the cause of scouting. If everyone can give a little something, whether it be financial support, time, or just spreading the word about this campaign, that would help greatly appreciated. Paraphrasing Mother Teresa, "Alone we cannot do everything, but together, we can cast a stone across the water that causes many ripples and strengthens our communities.


We are kicking off our week of giving June 6-10. We are building back up our strength and numbers. $240 supports a scout in the program all year. This is the most reasonable youth program as the breakdown is $20 a month for a scout to participate, which is less than our coffee habits. Part of being a non-profit that supports the development of our community youth, is ensuring that we can keep doing that for future generations. We need to ensure continued support of the cause of scouting. I hope you will consider investing back into scouting by following the link below. That way we continue to grow our youth in a positive way and support the growth of our communities. Thank you for all that you do for the cause of Scouting!

  • Levels of support are: $1-239; $240-499; $500+

  • ODD has been tasked with raising: $70,000

  • Funds raised to date: $12,460 (18% of goal)

  • Click Here to give now and invest in our youth

Your support of our goal ensures that our district events can happen. Programs and events such as Camporees, Pinewood Derbys, Merit Badge University, and Adult Leadership Trainings. Also helps keep the lights on at Camp Goshen and Snyder, the Scout Store, and administrative building (for our Eagles to get their Awards). In fact, see some great pictures below from our most recent Old Dominion Klondike Derby 2022!
