SDIC Impact Report

The San Diego-Imperial Council (SDIC) has made great strides forward in 2023 to deliver Scouting's values to young people. Thank you to our 4000+ volunteers and all of our donors whose contributions have set up our council for dynamic growth in the future. Your gifts of time, talent, and treasure help to shape lives. The 2023 Impact Report highlights the past year and shows that the council is set for even greater success in 2024.

Under the leadership of SDIC's Executive Board, our council has maintained a solid financial footing while weathering the challenges of the past few years. We are excited to message, loud and clear, that Scouting is safer and more relevant now than ever.

The Key 3 and the Executive Board are committed to achieving greater success in the coming year. We are establishing development practices to ensure our legacy with major gifts and grants. We are filling our summer camps and will increase how we advertise Scouting on social media. And, most important, we will grow our youth membership towards our goal of 6,500 youth served, while sending the message that all youth are welcome!

We can't achieve this success without your continued support. Take a look at 2023's achievements.
