It has been stated that, "The F.O.S. campaign solicits the community on
behalf of the Scouts. It pays for camps, professional payroll, council
service center, training, etc., etc."
I don't have a problem with saying that FOS monies pay for camps,
professional payroll, or council service center. In other words, it pays
for property and equipment used by all in the council. However, how does it
pay for training or activities, when all of those things have to be self
funded? If we are talking about professional training, fine, but if that is
the case, let's say so. I don't know of a volunteer training event that is
paid for with FOS monies. Quite the contrary, most volunteer training
events and activities turn out to be council money makers.
Just my $.02 worth.
