If you have a loved one or friend who has been impacted by the Scouting program, making a memorial gift is a meaningful way to honor their memory and support Chief Seattle Council programs. 

Gifts made in memoriam are added to Chief Seattle Council’s permanent endowment fund. This professionally-managed fund ensures that Scouting programs are supported for future generations. 

At the request of family members, a dedicated giving page can be set-up to promote memorial gifts. If someone is not listed below, gifts can still be made in memoriam by clicking on the the ‘make a memorial gift’ button. 

How we communicate with families:

The names of donors who make memorial gifts will be shared unless they are marked as anonymous. A donor’s name, address, and phone number are included, but individual giving amounts are kept private. This allows family members to communicate with those who made gifts in memory of a loved one, should they choose.   


If you’d like to set-up a personalized giving page for a loved one or friend, or have questions about memorial gifts, please contact:

The McLamb family has established a campership in memory of Sam McLamb, who passed away after a battle with cancer in June 2021 at the age of 33.

The Sam McLamb Philmont Campership Fund will provide a $1,000 annual stipend to a deserving Chief Seattle Council Scout attending Philmont Scout Ranch to help defray costs. Friends and family are encouraged to make donations to this fund, so that additional camperships may be funded in Sam’s memory.

Sam McLamb was an Eagle Scout, member of Order of the Arrow, and a leader in both Troop 600 in Bellevue and Troop 112 in Paris, France, where he began his Boy Scout adventure. Sam especially enjoyed camping at Camp Baden Powell in England, and Camp Parsons and Camp Sheppard in Washington. But most of all, he always held his High Adventure trip to Camp Philmont in New Mexico as a special memory.

This fund will exist in perpetuity and will be part of Chief Seattle Council’s permanent endowment fund.
