Concord Scout House

Support The Scout House

The Scout House operates with a small, part-time staff and many volunteers.  Your donations help preserve this unique community resource.

Who uses the Scout House?

  • Scout groups use the Scout House for more than 100 events each year, free of charge.
  • Our partners and regular renters, including the Barn Corporative Nursery School, use the facility at affordable rates while doing their share to maintain the facility.
  • People and organizations from Concord and surrounding communities rent the building for plays, meetings, celebrations, dances, weddings, family parties, and other events both public and private, and do so at rates that community groups and families can afford.

Rentals alone do not cover our expenses. Every year, hundreds of individuals and organizations contribute, either in response to our fundraising letters, or simply because they appreciate the House. We could not succeed without the financial help of a wonderful community!

Did you know we have a special fundraising campaign currently under way to bring air conditioning to the Scout House? (Paused due to COVID-19)

 

Contribute: Donations

Concord Scout House, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  All donations are deductible to the extent allowed by tax code.

Via Check/Online Bill Pay Service (no fee - preferred) or other Tangible Asset

Send your donation to Concord Scout House, Inc. at the P.O. Box address at the bottom of this page.  Include your return address to receive a receipt for tax deduction. This option maximizes your impact to the Scout House, by avoiding processing fees on your contribution. Please contact the office regarding anything other than a cash contribution.

Via PayPal Giving Fund (no fee - preferred)

We are a recognized charity for the PayPal Giving Fund. PayPal will pass along 100% of your designated donation in 15-45 days without levying any fees to either you or us. However, your charitable donation receipt will be by PayPal Giving Fund (not CSH). Rest assured we still receive the funds and put them to good use as you intend! Go to our designated PayPal Giving Fund page to use this option & maximize your contribution.

Matching Gift Programs (no fee - wonderful!)

Should you have a matching gift program available through your employer or other organization, we gladly accept matches for your donation! If we are not already recognized by your program, our charity Tax ID is 04-2104027 and address information is in the footer of this page.

From Your Donor Advised Fund (no fee - preferred)

We welcome contributions from your DAF! If not already in your custodian's system, our charity Tax ID is 04-2104027 and address information is in the footer of this page. We typically receive 100% of your designated grant amount - your fund may pay a program fee per your custodian agreement.

Give via Shopping on Amazon (no fee - appreciated!)

The Scout House participates in the Amazon Smile program. Once you designate the Scout House as your targeted charity, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the Scout House. We welcome you signing up and be sure to always start your shopping at https://smile.amazon.com to bring us this benefit.

Via PayPal, Credit or Debit Card (donation diminished by a fee)

Immediate contributions may be made via PayPal, either using your PayPal account or via your major credit or debit card instead (no PayPal account required). Start by clicking this button:

However, the current fee levied on PayPal transactions is 2.2% of the donation value + $0.30 each. You can also contribute via credit card by calling our office during staffed hours. For your security, please do not leave credit card details on our answering service.

Facebook (NOT Supported)

We applied for the Facebook Social Good program. They have an unpublished requirement for a physical postal address (despite processing through PayPal's system - which has no such requirement). Many part-time staffed organizations, such as ourselves, use post office boxes to ensure mail receipt. Facebook (alone, out of all the financial and government agencies we deal with) will not accept this. As such, we ask you to use another donor mechanism above.
