  Support the Bay Area Council, BSA


Your support helps the Boy Scouts of America continue their mission to improve the lives of Scouts across America.


Local Donation

The best way to support the BSA financially is by making a contribution directly to the local council that serves your community. By giving to your local 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. Please use our Zip Code which is 77551.

Corporate Giving & Sponsorships

Scouting's core values also likely complement your company's social responsibility goals. Scouting stresses character, leadership, community service, and environmental stewardship. It also instills a sense of achievement for youth of all races and economic backgrounds.

Eagle in Flight

The Bay Area Council has developed an endowment fund to support Camp Karankawa and the council service center. The endowment fund is permanent with the annual earnings being used for property improvements, capital needs and annual operations.

The Eagle in Flight program is an opportunity for parents of Eagle Scouts to give a lifetime honor to their son, or for current Eagle Scouts to name themselves as an “Eagle in Flight” recognition recipient. Additionally, any interested person may honor someone with this lifetime recognition (such as a Scoutmaster, community leader or long-time Scouter.)

Participation is easy - Simply complete the form below and return it to Bay Area Council, BSA, 3020 53rd Street, Galveston, TX 77551, with your contribution of a minimum of $1000. You may also make a pledge to be paid over the current year.

As recognition, each “Eagle in Flight” recipient will have his/her name displayed on the “Eagle in Flight” Eagle base at the council service center in Galveston and Camp Karankawa plus be named as a James E. West fellow.
