GSVUW won't use discretionary funds for Scouts



Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way has been distributing donations specifically designated to the Susquehanna Council in payments that began in March. United Way will continue to do so, until those designations are paid in full. United Way will also continue to honor designations specifically in future campaigns, and as always, the application process reopens annually.

“The Boy Scouts undeniably have a long history of positively affecting both youth and adults, so this decision is less about other organizations and more about how Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way will lead in the communities we serve,” said Albright. “We fund programs that reflect the value and practice of welcoming people of diverse backgrounds. We’re not straight adults or gay adults. We’re adults. There is strength in unity and that’s what we’re promoting.”
