Families in your Unit on December 31, 2016 x.20 x $155 = GOAL
Families are defined as youth members at re-charter (i.e.: a Pack with 52 boys at re-charter would have 52 families). In the instance of brothers from the same family, 2 or more youth from the same family count as 1 family.
Free rank is achieved once the total payment amount (not amount pledged) is equal to or greater than the Unit goal.
The cost of delivering the Scouting program in 2016 is $155 per youth.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS FAMILY FOS INCENTIVE IS:
CREATING THE GOAL:
Total expenses (based off of the 2015 budget)
Less total indirect income (ie: United Way)
Less total revenue (ie: Camp Fees)
Divided by the total number of Traditional Scouts (from Objectives Progress Report)
Equals per Scout amount the Council must raise
