Want to make an impact on hundreds of scouts from across the Pacific Northwest? Consider donating to Volcano Scouting's general fund! Because we are a membership-driven organization, we get most of our funding from our participants, however, we feel they should pay only what is needed to support a bare-minimum program. External donations help our staff provide additional program features that go above and beyond. For example, individual contributions supported the installation of a flagpole at the Mount St. Helens Science and Learning Center through a staff member's eagle scout project. All in-kind cash and product/service donations are tax-deductible thanks to the Mount St. Helens Institute. Interested in donating?
