C4P and the Order of the Arrow support OA Trail Crew Staff Scholarships
Update (Jan 2014): $8,900 or 17% of the $50,000 goal raised so far.
Help OA Trail Crew bring awesome Foremen back to Philmont!
Endowed scholarships for OATC Foremen enable OATC staff to pay for school and return to the Ranch staff for another summer. The Philmont Staff Association and OA Trail Crew alumni have come together for the “300 for 300” effort: 300 dedicated Arrowmen and Scouters who will commit $300 for endowed scholarships to keep the best trail crew staff on the planet!
“300 for 300” is part of the PSA’s Campaign4Philmont , which raises support for Philmont upgrades, facilities, and staff scholarships. Campaign4Philmont runs through the end of 2014, and donors can arrange their support on a one-time, quarterly, or even monthly basis. Every dollar raised through “300 for 300” will provide scholarships for returning OATC Foremen.
Donors giving at the Vaca level ($150 cumulative) receive a special Nalgene with the Campaign4Philmont and OATC Arrowhead logos as a show of your support. Rayado level donors ($300 cumulative giving) will receive the Nalgene and a commemorative back patch from Campaign4Philmont and the OATC 300 for 300 team. Rayado donors also receive their name engraved on a brick at the Silver Sage Staff Activity Center. Donations are tax deductible; the PSA will send a year-end summary for your records.
Many employers offer a “Matching Gifts Program” to help maximize the impact of its employees’ charitable giving through company-matched donations. If your company does offer such a program, please consider your donation for a company match.
We hope you’ll consider supporting OA Trail Crew and the dedicated Scouts who serve as Foremen.
