Our troop is currently evaluating our dues and fees that are charged to
the scouts, and I would like to ask for input from other troops as to
how they do it.
Currently, we charge dues of $2.00/month which "covers" the cost of all
awards for the scouts (rank, patches, M.B., etc), reregistration, Boys
Life subscription, and misc. such as copies of forms, letters,
newsletters, and ???. We do not charge any extra fees for activities to
cover the cost of transportation or equipment. We do have occasional
fund raisers - part of the profits go to the scouts account, and part to
the troop for equipment and operating costs.
The two dollars barely cover expenses, and support for fund raisers have
been dwindling over time. So we are in need of ideas?
Any suggestions, ideas, and models appreciated.
