Boy Scouts of America, National Capital Area Council (NCAC) Joins America’s Charities – Community First

Source: The Scouter Digest (page 10)

Boy Scouts of America, National Capital Area Council (NCAC) is pleased to announce their new partnership with Community First – America’s Charities of Greater Washington, D.C.  America’s Charities’ local federation, Community 1st, addresses a diverse range of social concerns and needs in the greater D.C. area and supports some of the community’s most respected charities, including Catholic Charities, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Make-A-Wish and Habitat for Humanity.  

Following a board vote in August 2013, UWNCA decided to sever ties with the Boy Scouts of America, National Capital Area Council.  While UWNCA no longer supports NCAC, many other United Way partners continue to support great Scouting programs in their communities.

What’s Different?

UWNCA has removed NCAC from their partner agency listing for all workplace giving campaigns in both the private and public sectors, including the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFC) and employee giving campaigns at local businesses such as Dominion, Freddie Mac and ExxonMobil.  It is important to note that donors can still write-in NCAC’s name (Boy Scouts of America, National Capital Area Council) and NCAC will receive those donations.  The real difference is that NCAC is no longer listed as a partner agency.

What Can You Do?

America’s Charities also holds many local giving campaigns in the workplace throughout the greater DC area.  If you have a company that is interested in learning more about America’s Charities and Community First, please direct them to Michelle Lynch And remember: if you don’t see NCAC listed in your workplace giving campaign, just write them in as ‘Boy Scouts of America, National Capital Area Council’.
