July-August 2021
BSA Chapter 11 Update

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has made substantial progress in its Chapter 11 case by reaching an agreement regarding the amount the national organization and local councils will contribute to the Trust of survivors. This agreement ensures that the BSA has the overwhelming support of survivors for our proposed Plan of Reorganization, which is a key step in the BSA’s path toward emerging from bankruptcy.
 
The national organization has agreed to contribute assets with up to $250 million in value to the Trust for survivors and the local councils will contribute an additional $500 million of cash and properties.

We are hopeful that this progress toward a global resolution benefits the entire Scouting community.
 
Thank you, as always, for your support of the Pathway to Adventure Council.
