National Endowment

The National OA Endowment was formed more than 30 years ago as a means for the Order of the Arrow to fund scholarships and special programs. In the early years, the endowment was funded through the sale of Vigil Honor membership cards at National Order of the Arrow Conferences.

From this humble beginning, the endowment has grown into the primary funding source for all OA high adventure programs, Josh R. Sain Memorial Scholarships, National Scout Jamboree OA programs, and lodge service grants which support lodges in their effort to serve their local councils.
