Thanks for the information.
What is the source?
My google search indicates that it came from: http://www.eaglescout.org
While I like
what it says and assuming this is the source (prior Eagle Scouts). This is NOT
an official BSA site (However, I love the detail they provide
) and can not be relied upon.
I will stick by my orginal statement that I have not seen anything written by BSA that addresses this issue of family donations.
Also, Fundraising is NOT part of the learning. Funding
has to be addressed. You are adding to the requirements if you require any fundraising.
A scout can simply state that his family will pay all expenses. Subject to Bank o Dad prior approval
Eagle Scout Requirement 5: While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community. The project idea must be approved by your Scoutmaster and troop committee and by the council or district before you start. You must use the Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project Workbook, No. 18-927, in meeting this requirement.
Cite where in #18-927 where fundraising is an issue other than the project cannot in of itself be a fundraiser?
Read my post. I strongly personally
believe that if you want $$, then you better ask a number of places. My son met MY requirement for donations.
However, it is NOT required. So, families can pay for everything (unless I have missed a BSA publication).
See my other post to Cowboy about the Eagle process. I am very well versed in the rules due to prior issues in our District. (However, I am always open to the fact that I missed something)
I will be using the http://www.eaglescout.org
as a resource. Very cool site.
