Inland Northwest Council News
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Our strategic plan includes initiatives to enable: (1) every participant to advance at least one rank or earn at least 3 recognitions annually; (2) every participant to have an outdoor program experience at least 3 times a year; (3) every participant to benefit from fully-trained volunteer leadership at every level (unit, district & council.); (4) every member to participate in at least one or more community service projects annually.
Budget & Funding
The council’s annual budget is $2.4 million. Revenue comes from United Way (4%), popcorn sales (14%), donations (28%), program fees (37%), sale of supplies (3%), endowments (6%), special events (4%) and other (4%). 86% of the revenues are spent on program services, 9% on management, and 5% on fundraising. The council partners with the Spokane County United Way, Twin County United Way and the United Way of Pullman.
