The Scouting Opportunity Fund

Enjoyed by over 40 million people across 169 countries, Scouting offers a world of adventure and challenge – inspiring and encouraging young people to become the best version of themselves, to be the leaders of tomorrow and to contribute positively to their communities.

However, affordability is a barrier for many. This is why the Scouting Opportunity Fund was created; to be a source of financial support for the children of families who simply cannot afford to join the adventure.

Your help will ensure more young people will have the opportunity to experience adventure, build resilience  and have a positive attitude to the challenges life flings their way.

The vision of the Scouting Opportunity Fund is to see the benefits of Scouting available to all Kiwi youth who want to participate, no matter their circumstances. We think the experience of Scouting should be available to all young Kiwis and with your help we want to ensure no one is left behind.

By making a donation you will also become a member of the Scout Youth Foundation.

You can decide whether to:

  • Support Kiwi youth to join their local Scout Group by making a one-off or regular donation.
  • Support young Scouts to attend a major event (such as Jamboree) by making a one-off or regular donation to the Brian Cunningham scholarship initiative.

Together we can make this vision a reality.
