scouts-l Mail Archive for February of 2000: is there a fund for Scouts whose parents pass away?

I was recently asked if there is a fund for boy scouts whose parents are
killed in an accident. I don't know of such a fund, does anyone else? I
am not soliciting donations for this person, nor is this a chain letter. In
the interest of privacy, I have changed all names in this letter.
Here is the note I received:
Many of you may already know that Steve Smith's dad Bob died in a car
accident Thursday Night. He left his wife, Barb, and 2 children Steve and
Joe. I would like to know if there is any official Scouting fund or system
to help families in a situation like this. Apparently there is no life
insurance and the mother is from Germany with little or no family support
