Opposition to the Quivira Council $120 Program Fee

Recommended Posts

Crossroads of America council (central Indiana) is going through this as well, except our anticipated fee is $240 annual (or $20/month). Leaders and Parents were both taken back when we heard of this earlier this spring, and the council wisely backed off until they could provide more information on what the need was.

We are getting some good info now... unfortunately a combination of multiple things in the past couple of years have put our council in a big deficit, including (but not limited to) to a large annual loss of grant money. I'm not sure what the right answer is to solve for it, but I fear that asking parents to come up with the money to cover the deficit could end scouting for our council in the near future. I feel like the only way to compete with sporting programs is to be partially funded by local/state tax dollars (like school funds cover things like sports facilities where these sports programs are run out of).
