Service Grant Program Announced

Order of the Arrow Announces Service Grant Program

In 1999, the National OA Committee announced a new program to encourage lodges to give service to their councils and camps. This program was designed to help lodges deliver the fourth part of the OA’s purpose, “to crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others”. The OA Service Grant program provides up to $5,000 in matching funds for a camp or service center project. More than 100 service grants have been awarded to date. Lodges are required to submit an application to receive a grant and are required to be at least a bronze level Journey to Excellence lodge at the time of application.
