Charitable Donations

Does your company have a program where it allows you to apply for charitable donations to various groups? Or do you make charitable donations yourself for philanthropic and/or tax deduction purposes? Scouts Canada is a registered charity and you can make charitable donations directly to 1st Milton Scouting

Some parents have asked about doing a charitable donation in place of one of our fundraisers.  While we deeply appreciate any form of donation, we would actually prefer your child to do the fundraising if the donation were to be in spite of fundraising.  Fundraising teaches Scouts important life and business skills such as marketing, strategy development and financial responsibility, and improves self-esteem and confidence.

Charitable donations to 1st Milton also can not be directed to a specific youth.  So while donating to 1st Milton may have the same end result of fundraising (the group gets money to fund adventures and programming) we can not give your child any of the “direct” benefits of that fundraiser.  I.E. you can make a donation which will meet the fundraising target but you will still have to pay for the camp / sleep over as your donation can’t go specifically to your child.
