Boy Scouts of America, Daniel Webster Council

2020 Goals:

As the Council grows with the addition of new members, our goal is to raise the capital and daily operating funds needed to continue to provide youth and families across New Hampshire with activities that provide exciting adventure and workforce development opportunities that foster healthy choices, character and leadership to prepare youth for life.

Fundraising Events:

Every year, the Daniel Webster Council hosts events across New Hampshire to raise awareness and resources to support Scouting. Our signature event, the Distinguished Citizens Award Dinner, honors an individual and a corporation making a positive impact for youth and families in the state. In addition, our calendar of statewide events includes: Winni Derby (salmon fishing tournament on Lake Winnipesaukee), Golf Classic and the Shooting Sports Class each fall.

Special events also include the Women in Leadership Event, an Eagle Scout Recognition event and a Construction, Real Estate & Design Event.

Good Scout Award Luncheons are held in communities throughout the year, and will be held in the Lakes Region, Keene, Claremont, Portsmouth, Exeter, the Upper Valley and Nashua.

Giving Opportunities:

It’s easy to give the adventure of Scouting to youth in New Hampshire! Our donors give in a multitude of ways to support positive youth development, and you can, too. In addition to attending or sponsoring special events outlined above, you can give to our Annual “Friends of Scouting” Appeal to support daily operations, make a single- or multi year major gift; support a specific program, camp property or Scouting event; or make a planned gift. For more information, contact John Rainville at You can visit to make or pledge a gift and learn more about New Hampshire Scouting Adventures!

Volunteer Opportunities:

The Daniel Webster Council exists to support volunteers in the delivery of youth programs of the Boy Scouts of America. Over 5,000 adult volunteers serve in a variety of ways – from office work to trail building, from board governance to Cubmaster, from putting up tents to raising money. Volunteer opportunities are as varied as our programs, and receive significant training on youth development, program delivery, youth protection and outdoor safety.
