Mt. Diablo Silverado Council serves over 10,600 youth in Contra Costa, Lake, Napa, southern Solano, and northern Alameda counties in the Bay Area.  More than 4,000 dedicated adult volunteers provide the skills and leadership needed to deliver Scouting’s message. Our goal is to provide a premier experience in developing our youth into the leaders of tomorrow.

Our Scouting Programs are making a positive impact in our community by teaching young people the values and skills that lead them to be self-reliant, good citizens, and the next generation of leaders.

FOS is the single most important source for funding the outstanding Scouting program our council delivers.  Everyone’s ability to give is different. What we ask is that everyone chooses to give something no matter how modest that might be.

Consider becoming a member of the Evergreen Sustainability Circle by giving $10 or more per month, automatically charged to your credit or debit card. By making a sustainable donation you help the council in a more efficient process, along with the convenience to the donor. You may change the contribution amount or ending period at any time. Your gift will help Scouting for months and even years to come.

Double your Donation / Matching Gifts

An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax-deductible component of your membership) to our organization. If you are a Scouting volunteer, your employer may also provide us with a grant to recognize your ongoing support. Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs! 

See if your employer will match your donation!

Thank you, Partners! You help provide a Scouting program for 11,000 Youth in Contra Costa, Napa, Lake, northern Alameda and southern Solano counties
