Memorials & Tributes

Memorials and tribute contributions are generally gifts to the Northeast Illinois Council Endowment Fund, although they have also been designated by our Scouting families and friends to scholarships, uniform assistance and support for other passions in relation to their Scouting experience.  This is a gratifying way for individuals, businesses, or groups to remember or honor special friends. Your special donation in memory or honor of an extraordinary individual in your life will be acknowledged and handled with great care. Tributes are suitable for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays.

If you would like to make a memorial tribute or bequest, please contact Scout Executive, Doug Nelson.
