A new project
Thu, 23 Jun 1994 17:08:49 EDT
OK gang, I need a bit of advice in setting up a new program for both my
employer and my local Council. My boss(aka: the Coucil President AND my
father) has asked me to develop a new program for the Scouts in the Council.
I work for a farely large Credit Union(a non-profit financial cooperative).
We would like to create a method of allowing the boys to save up for camp and
other activities similar to a Christmas club account.
So far, I've decided that we would open an account to be jointly held by the
Unit and the Council(Mostly for the use of the Coucil Tax ID number). Each
account would have a sub-account for each member of the unit, so the money
would never co-mingle. Monthly statements would provide the Unit Leader with
a timely accounting of the funds each boy has saved.
What I need is some advice as to how a Unit Leader would like to see this
sort of thing work. So far, I have complete freedom in designing the program.
I'd also like some advice in how to get people to participate in this and
make it as easy as possible for them. I can probably even get away with
interest baring accounts once they reach a certain level. I'd also like to
see this help the boys in saving their own funds for summer camp, instead of
just having mom or dad sign a check. Thanks for the help.
Although some discussion on Camp savings is probably appropriate for the
list, private replies are welcome to firstname.lastname@example.org
