Growing Philanthropy for Boy Scouts of America
Hartsook Companies, Inc. has a decades-long tradition of helping grow philanthropy for Boy Scouts of America (BSA) councils. Hartsook provides local councils with professional fundraising management and expertise. 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 assist your local council email [email protected] or call us at: (866) 630-8500.


A Scout is Loyal

Loyal: Steadfast, dedicated, constant and true.

One who is loyal will not say yes when no is necessary. Loyal does not mean always agreeing. Clear communication is of higher value than self-interest or disingenuous "agreement." Above all, Hartsook is loyal to its clients because our mission is to help our clients fully realize their mission.


See You There! Boy Scouts of America
2015 National Annual Meeting, May 20-22

It's almost here! Make plans to meet us in Atlanta for Boy Scouts of America's 2015 National Annual Meeting. This year's theme - Build an Adventure - is especially significant in light of BSA National and Hartsook's exclusive fundraising partnership.

Schedule an appointment to participate in a board training session and learn how this partnership can benefit your local council. Stop by Booth 355 to sign up to win a Garmin fenix watch and meet with one of our Hartsook consultants.
