How to Give
As a donor to the Quivira Endowment, you determine where your money goes and how it will be spent. The Endowment ensures your wishes and passions are followed and supported. It is also our job to keep you informed on the status and impact of your gift or fund. Gifts to and through the Endowment may be to any Scouting entity and be used for operating, capital or Endowment needs.
You can also make undesignated gifts to the Endowment and allow the Endowment to distribute the funds to council initiatives. The Endowment is on the leading edge of Scouting need and program innovation. Your undesignated or discretionary funds can be distributed directly to specific needs or for innovative pilot programs.
As the cost of setting up and administering a gift can be prohibitively expensive, the BSA Endowment can serve as trustee for a wide variety of charitable gifts at competitive rates. Additionally, you may want to make a large gift supporting worthwhile charities other than Scouting. The Endowment permits you to name other qualified charities, in addition to the Endowment, as beneficiaries of a gift or trust. This can greatly reduce the time and expense of making separate gifts to each charity.
