About FOSSOM

Key programs include:

  • The SSTV der PeLiKan which provides summer and weekend training cruises to youth.
  • The Crabtree Scholarship which provides financial assistance to scouts in need, who may not otherwise be able to participate in maritime training programs.
  • Sponsorship for the SEAL Program for the Sea Scouts BSA.
  • Support to numerous youth maritime training program events.

100% of all funds go directly to program.  SSTV der PeLiKan is our office and everyone at FOSSOM is a volunteer.  So your contributions go directly to supporting youth.
