The mission of the European Scout Foundation (ESF) is to provide financial support for the development of Scouting in Europe, with a main emphasis on projects of National Scout Organizations in Central and Eastern Europe.
As a means of raising money, the European Scout Foundation developed the Friends of Scouting in Europe (FOSE).
Through this initiative ESF is aiming to enable its members to demonstrate their support for the ideals and aspirations of Scouting, by contributing financially to the Movement’s growth in Europe – and emphazing local and regional scout projects.
