Costs not directly related to program. in Open Discussion - Program Posted March 12, 2012 RE: Eagle Scout gifts from the troop, such as NESA lifetime membership @ $250.00, framing, neckerchiefs, slides and the like. How do these troops fund these costs? We participate in popcorn sales, and fund our program and equipment costs with little left over. Our CO doesn't like year round fundraising, in fact we can't sell popcorn in the building....... While these gifts are nice, I wonder how much of an additional burden these costs are placing on the scouts? Are these costs being transferred to the non-Eagles?
