Rancho San Joaquin Friends of Scouting Campaign


Thank you to all those who have supported and contributed to the RSJ FOS Campaign!!!! RSJ NEEDS YOUR HELP!!! Last year, only 14% of Scout families made a gift to support the Orange County Council. In 2017, of the 722 Eagle Scouts awarded, 60% of the families never made a Friends of Scouting contribution during their entire Scout’s tenure. Contrary to popular belief, the operation of the council is not free for our members. Someone is paying for these services. The council has worked hard over the years to keep activity costs low, but times are changing, and business expenses are rising at an alarmingly fast rate. Those receiving the benefits of Scouting must share in covering the local costs of Scouting.

Congratulations RSJ for hitting the 90% mark in FOS Contributions in 2019!!!

The land known as Irvine has been inhabited for over 2,000 years. The Gabrielino Native Americans were one of the first to set up villages in the San Joaquin Valley. In 1837 the San Juan Capistrano mission granted Don Jose Sepulveda this area, later to be named Rancho San Joaquin. 30 years later, Rancho San Joaquin was sold to the Flint, Bixby & Co., of which James Irvine was a silent partner.

We have selected Rancho San Joaquin as the new name of our district. The Rancho San Joaquin District will serve the youth and volunteers of the Boy Scouts of America for the City of Irvine.
