The mission of BSA Parents is to recruit, inform and amplify voices of those who believe:
- That the Boy Scouts of America is a vital organization that plays an indispensable role in the formation of character and values in America’s youth.
- That the Boy Scouts of America is invaluable to our communities.
- That the Boy Scouts of America is a welcoming and inclusive organization that should live on and thrive for generations to come.
- That the Boy Scouts of America has a social and moral responsibility to continue to protect youth and it needs to continue to live out this duty every day.
BSA Parents is a 501c(4) not-for-profit that was started by parents of Scouts and friends of the BSA. We started this organization to help tell the stories of Scouts and the important role Scouting plays in our communities and in our country.
BSA Parents is made up of parents of Scouts and friends of the BSA. Anyone who believes in our mission and wants to help and/or share their story can do so here.
Our organization is made up of, and governed by, parents of Scouts and other BSA supporters. The BSA does not have any governance authority or role in our organization, and does not control our mission, our programs or the content you see on this site. The BSA has donated funds to us, which we have used to pay for our website and related startup costs. Other than that initial donation from the BSA, however, we intend to be supported entirely by other independent supporters.
BSA Parents is a separate organization and is not affiliated with the fundraising efforts for local councils.
