Dear Friends of the Great Salt Lake Council,

"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." - Sir Winston Spencer Churchill

The mission of the Great Salt Lake Council's Endowment is to create a consistent sustainable source of income to secure Scouting's future. The endowment financial goal is $5,000,000.00 by December 31, 2015. With this in mind my wife, Colleen, and I, have donated $100,000 to the endowment for 2014, with a match gift of $50,000 for every new endowment pledge made during 2015. We encourage all Friends of Scouting and dedicated Scouters to join us in making this goal a reality.

We greatly appreciate and thank you for your continued support.

Roger Thompson, Council Endowment Chairman
