BSF Finance Sub-Committee meets with SAB Scout Executive

On Thursday, August 1, 2019 members of the Belize Scout Foundation (BSF) Finance Sub-Committee meet with Scout Executive for The Belize Scout Association (SAB) to assist SAB in formulating a grant proposal for an expansion plan.

Currently, SAB’s membership is at its lowest with only three hundred (300) members countrywide.  BSF exist to support SAB financially with projects that fall within specific areas defined from time to time by BSF directors and for 2019 the growth of membership is a priority for the Foundation.

Mr. Julian Castillo, Finance Sub-Committee Chairman BSF who was present at the meeting along with Dr. Erasmo Franklin, Finance Sub-Committee member and Mr. Hilberto B. Riverol, Executive Director for BSF went through an entire proposal submitted by SAB for funding in an effort to ensure that the proposal is a workable plan, is justifiable, is transparent and measurable so that at the end of the nine-month project, membership will have doubled to six hundred (600) Scouts.

The BSF Mission is to raise, invest and administer funds to create the means to support Scout programs that will prepare young people to make sound principled life decisions as they develop into responsible adults.

The Vision is to have the wherewithal to be able to support financially and materially the growth of Scouting in Belize, thereby making it the foremost Movement for young people.

Scout Executive Roberto Lopez says it is expected that the nine-month expansion plan for SAB will be launched on September 1, 2019.

The Chairman of the Belize Scout Foundation is Dr. Rene Villanueva.
