The Friends of Scouting in Europe (FOSE) is an initiative of the European Scout Foundation, individuals can demonstrate their support for the ideals and aspirations of Scouting, by contributing financially to the Movement in Europe.

This exciting initiative has huge potential to provide real and visible support to Scouting in Europe in general but particularly to the development and growth of our Movement in central and eastern Europe.
