FAQ

What is the Eagle Scout Scholarship Trust Fund?

The Eagle Scout Scholarship Trust is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. The Trust works closely with the Las Aguilas de Diablo organization, a community of dedicated leaders, who themselves hold the Eagle Award and seek to recognize those youths who have earned the highest rank in the Scouting program. We sponsor a special dinner for each scout who has achieved top ranking during that year.

How is the Scholarship Trust Fund Managed?

The Eagle Scout Scholarship Trust Fund is conservatively invested in low-cost managed mutual funds. The goal is to have the Fund generate the sufficient income necessary to fund scholarships while invested for capital growth to ensure that the fund grows and is not diminished by inflation. No administrative costs are paid out of the Fund.

How can gifts be made to the Eagle Scout Scholarship Trust Fund?

Gifts to the Eagle Scout Scholarship Trust may be made with cash, stock, bonds, insurance policies and bequests. Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from IRAs can be transferred to a 501(c) non-profit on a tax-favored basis.
