Growing Philanthropy for Boy Scouts of America
Hartsook has a decades-long tradition of helping Boy Scouts of America (BSA) councils – with over $165 million raised for BSA. The Hartsook team helps improve councils’ major gift prospect identification, qualification, cultivation and solicitation; grant research and proposal writing; campaign assessments; estate giving; annual fund planning and implementation; leadership development and more. To learn how Hartsook can help your local council, contact us at [email protected] or at (866) 630-8500.
A Scout is Kind
Kind: thoughtful, humanitarian.
Hartsook follows the philosophy of the Scout slogan to “do a good turn daily.” When providing fundraising guidance to our clients, we choose to offer the highest level of consideration and thoughtfulness day after day, year after year, decade after decade.
