2024 Invest in Character (IIC) Campaign

Dear Pack 24 families,   

Recently the Pathway to Adventure Council (PTAC) conducted an in-person presentation around the Invest in Character (IIC) Campaign.  PTAC is the council that oversees Pack 24 and the majority of the Chicagoland area. This is a once-a-year opportunity for the families and friends of our youth to donate for the support of our children who are involved in the Scouting program.

The presentation to Pack 24 was given on Saturday February 24th during our Blue and Gold / Crossover Event.  At that meeting the attending families made donations and/or pledges in the amount of $734.62.  This is a greatly appreciated gesture in showing how the families see the value of the BSA.  

We know the ask for a donation to the Scouts may be new to you as you are venturing forward in the Boy Scouts of America and PTAC.  You may be asking how you can make a donation. 

Linked below is the website where you can learn more about the IIC Campaign and make a donation. https://fundraise.givesmart.com/e/QMk9og . If you are able to make a donation please note we are the Portage Creek District, our unit type is Pack, and we are technically Unit number 3024. 

The Youth and Leadership of PTAC thank you for your consideration of this request. If you have any questions, contact Tim Strudeman, our professional Scouter who supports our pack. He can be reached at 630/487-3375 or tim.strudeman@scouting.org. Together, we can continue to deliver the promise of quality Scouting to the youth of our community.
