I am sure that the answer to this question is more likely to be based on the
financial stability of the Council rather then National policy however:
I have been told that the National Financial Accounting Policy does not permit
District level funds/accounts. Yet virtually every district that I know of
both in our council (Great Trail Council - Akron Ohio) and outside has some
sort of slush fund. My experience with "Slush" funds tells me that it would be
better to have a more legit way to manage the needs for district level
programming and awards.
This is not a suggestion that districts be allowed to accumulate or be provided
with thousands of dollars but a small fund to use for materials for new
Scouters or training Scouters that might not be able to pay for it, special
awards and other types of recognition.
Any one got any thoughts on how others do it?
