Troop 3 – Derby Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Alumni & Friends Fund
Est. 2013 as a revocable organization fund by a transfer of assets.
For more than 100 years, Boy Scout Troop 3 in Derby has enjoyed a long and storied tradition of excellence and success. Nearly 300 of its scouts has achieved the Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank in Scouting!
What would a summer be without attending Camp Strang in Goshen? Or perhaps going on the annual international scout exchange to England or Ireland? A group of Troop 3 alumni and friends wanted to ensure that these activities would continue. They established the Troop 3 - Derby BSA Alumni and Friends Foundation to give scouting friends and Troop 3 alums the opportunity to contribute to these scouting activities, including camperships to attend summer camp at the Edmund D. Strang Scouting Reservation, aid for its annual International Scout Exchange Program, and general operating support for Troop 3 expenses.
The Foundation established a fund with Valley Community Foundation (VCF) to manage its assets in a diversified investment portfolio so that they can focus on their mission of providing direct service to the scouting community.
