Charles Pourciau <pourciau@EARTHLINK.NET> asks about copying RT handouts:
Here is our situation:
If there is money budgeted, no one will admit to it, much less let go of it.
Our district's Cub RT produces about 40 pages (sides) of program material (I
call 'em "theme Books") for each RT meeting. These are offered to attendees
with a suggested donation of $1 and suggested limit of1 per pack. Reciepts
are "plowed back in" to pay for other aspects of RT operation (mainly
perishable program materials and some manuals.)
The copying/collating/stapling is donated. Every so often, we must recruit
a new donor, but many businesses are willing to throw in a few months for
such a good cause.
Since it isn't budgeted, it is not claimed as a project sale.
It is questionable whether it could be a tax deductable gift to scouting.
Making this work requires advance coordination because of the
composing/printing lead time requirement.
The big thing that keeps this running here is that my wife, Barb (SB-'96)
scours her closet full of POW WOW books for neat, theme related material.
