Paul (and others),
After spending a year on our Council's Exec Board, I have a lot better
feel for the FoS "goal" figure of $xx.xx per boy and the percentages
spoken of. I think those figures you give _might_ be interpreted as follows:
1. The overall council budget divided by the number of enrolled
youth is equal to $60 per boy.
2. The FoS campaign results in about 18% of the total revenue
generated by all fundraising, ie., United Way, endowment funds,
investments, interest bearing accounts, corporate donations, etc.
If your council is truly spending $333.per boy, I'd like to see their budget.
