Green Thumb Partnerships

Be a Green Thumb with Garden State Council

What: Green Thumb is a mutually beneficial digital partnership between your Company and the Garden State Council, BSA, focused on cross-promotion and the sponsorship of Scouting events.

Why: The goal of a Green Thumb Partnership is to help your company further its mission. The Garden State Council serves 7,000 families across six counties in South Jersey with a digital reach across the state and beyond. Partnering with an organization founded in values connects your Company to families who are loyal, engaged and active in the community.

When: Green Thumb partnership opportunities exist throughout the calendar year.

How: Grow your Green Thumb partnership by selecting a level and events that work for you.
Each level is connected to Council-hosted events, providing branding/advertising support across the Council’s digital presence, which includes web, social, e-newsletter, and virtual event programming.

The mission of the Garden State Council, BSA is to instill values in young people, so they can make ethical decisions throughout their lifetimes. Scouting prepares young people for life. Character education through outdoor adventure is what we do. Since 1910, the BSA has helped millions of young people and their families create memories that will last a lifetime.

A Scout is thrifty and helpful. So is serving as a Green Thumb.
