Wayne and Christine Perry

Wayne and Christine Perry are steadfast advocates of the Scouting movement because they have witnessed the program’s results within youth on every level from the Cub Scout pack through International Scouting. From shepherding all four of their sons through Cub Scouting to the Eagle rank to serving as president of the Boy Scouts of America and chairman of the World Scout Foundation, Wayne and Chris have devoted incalculable time to furthering the Scouting movement as two of its most foremost champions and philanthropists. As chair couple of the Office of Philanthropy since 2010, Wayne and Chris have led the charge to obtain financial gifts to fund leadership and character development programming and venues at the Summit Bechtel Reserve.

Why I give...

“The Boy Scouts of America stands for the kind of leadership that goes beyond a single act of heroism. We champion moral leadership demonstrated through a lifetime of service. Only this type of leadership can truly prepare young people to be leaders throughout their lives.”
‒ Wayne Perry

“I’ve always admired the whole program. It’s comprehensive—it teaches Scouts leadership, citizenship, intelligence, and spirituality by recognizing their duty to God.”
‒ Christine Perry
