Back To Front Page


In the wake of recent bankruptcy filings by the national Boy Scouts of America (BSA) organization, the Boy Scouts of America LaSalle Council is announcing that its mission to deliver quality programs to area children “remains strong and is financially secure.”

According to a statement released today, “The LaSalle Council is an independent organization. Its assets are not combined with the national BSA. All of the fundraising activity conducted by the LaSalle Council is used throughout local Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan counties for regional programs and activities. The only local dollars that go to the national organization come from initial member registration fees.”

“Our council will not be disrupted by the national bankruptcy filing,” said John Cary, CEO/Scout Executive for the LaSalle Council. “We’re very proud to say that all of our council’s assets will remain secure and our commitment to serving the youth and communities of our region is stronger than ever.”

“The national BSA’s bankruptcy filing was made, in part, to settle legal claims,” the statement said. “None of those claims pertained to litigation filed within the LaSalle Council’s territories.”

The Boy Scouts of America LaSalle Council serves eight counties across Northern Indiana and Southwest Lower Michigan.
