Funds that go into the Troop General Fund over the course of the year are tagged to the individual scout to track each scout's $125 Yearly Contribution Goal. Thank you to the scouts who exceed that goal, this is how we fund the Troop. Scouts who do not meet the Yearly Contribution Goal will be sent notice and will be expected to pay the difference to the Troop Treasurer by December 5th.
For all Sales, the funds earned will be split evenly between the Individual Scout Account and the Troop General Fund.
For the FALL SALE, the TOP THREE OVERALL sellers will earn Bonuses of 50%, 30%, and 20% of Troop portion, respectively.
Fundraising Sales Policy-
Starting January 1, 2014 the troop will be requiring the following: 1. A scout must sell enough products to equal $125 profit to the troop. If he does not meet this goal by December 1st, he will be billed for the remainder. 2. If a scout chooses not to participate in any product sales he can donate $125 to the troop in lieu of selling.
Reasons a scout should participate in product sale fundraising: a. A scout learns about salesmanship, developing communication skills, and confidence b. The scout takes ownership in his troop. c. He learns about paying his own way, and reduces the financial burden on his family when he wants to go on a campout. d. A scout actively supports his troop, he’s giving back. This is the scouting way.
Expenses that are covered by fundraising: a. Insurance for the trailer b. Repairs and signage for the trailer c. All camping supplies- which includes tents, cookware, stoves, Dutch ovens, water containers, tables, high adventure gear, canoes, paper products, charcoal, etc. d. Troop events such as Courts of Honor, celebrations, Webelos and Cub scout outings e. All campouts and outdoor activities require at least 2 adult leader to be present. The troop pays for Necessary Adult registration costs. Fundraising helps cover this expense. f. Annual re-charter cost, Boys Life subscriptions, merit badges, rank patches, position patches.
Historically, Troop 49 has never asked a scout or his family to pay a "joining" cost. Many other troops do this to help cover registration fees and the scouts' part of troop expenses. The burden of covering set expenses in our troop has always been covered by scouts participating in fundraising events. It is critical that scouts not only sell but sell enough to cover their costs within the troop. When the scouts sell they are reinforcing the scout spirit of teamwork, family, and helping other people at all times.
