Dr. Phillips Charities has established a matching grant fund at the Central Florida Council to which Eagle Scout candidates may apply for partial assistance to fund their Eagle Scout Service project. Only projects located in Orange, Osceola & Seminole counties will be considered for approval. The Eagle Scout Project Proposal should include completion of the Preliminary Cost Estimate and, if approved by Dr. Phillips Charities, where you will get the matching funds. It must have Council approval prior to submission.

Grant funds will be dispensed following receipt of documentation certifying the amount and source of all matching funds.
Within 30 days following completion of the project, a detailed financial report, to include photo copies of receipts for all expenditures must be submitted to the Central Florida Council Office.
