As a businessman, if a Scout came back and said: "Mr. Cowboy, I raised more money than I needed here is some of your donation back." I would take the money back, congratulate the boy, and then have more money to donate to the next project.

Ed...I don't think it's the donated materials that's the concern, its the cash generated by the fundraising dinner and what to do with it. Getting a re-nod from his EP signors is a formality that shows the scout thought about it vice listing it as a change and having a bigger concern at the EBOR.
"Oh yeah...I got $2000 from my fundraiser that I didn't need so I just gave them the money" - probably being proactive on this is a good idea.

So, that's why I suggest giving it to the organization benefitting from the project. As mentioned above, to a maintenence fund is a GREAT way to handle it!
