How do we raise funds/pay our way - Membership Fees & Fund Raising

Introduction

The Group needs to raise funds of around £18,000 per year to cover general running costs and provide for new equipment and major repairs when they become necessary in the building.

The Group is financed in two ways:

Membership Fees

Each member is asked to pay membership fees and this is collected termly.

We run a gift aid scheme for the payment of fees, which allows the Group as a charity to recover the tax paid by the members' parents. All parents need to do is sign the membership envelope.

Full details on membership fees can be found here.

Fund Raising

The Scout Group operates a number of schemes to achieve this. The major schemes are:

Fund raising is overseen by a Fund Raising Team to oversee and manage its fund raising activities. A list of the Fund Raising Team Members can be found under Contact Us.
