Growing Philanthropy for Boy Scouts of America

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.
