Help Scouts provide relief in Philippines typhoon disaster. Donate now!

Donations are vital in helping Scouts help others. Scouting has a wide variety of programmes and projects that need big and small contributions.

Donations will support peace education, environmental education, leadership development, sustainable development, child health, youth participation in decision-making, and many other areas.

How can I contribute?
You can make a donation to World Scouting directly here on the website. No donation is too small, every little contribution helps. Donations will be directed to where it is needed most, through U-Fund (amounts less than USD 10,000) and the World Scout Foundation (all amounts above USD 10,000).


U-Fund was established in 1963 to provide a means for all members of the Scout Movement to help Scouts in other countries in their development activities.

The Scout Universal Fund (U-Fund) is designed “to help Scouts help themselves”. Over the years it has helped convert dreams into real Scout projects, around the world. It has provided an opportunity for Scout Groups, individual donors and National Scout Organizations to make a difference at the grassroots level in another country, where there is a need for resources to support Scouting.

Since 2002, the U-Fund has been dedicated to supporting projects in the Africa Scout Region. In recent years, the U-Fund has been dedicated to supporting projects primarily in three areas: peace education, fight against HIV/AIDS and reaching out to children in difficult circumstances.
