In reviewing the Handbook policies for "Other" account and fundraising I am concerned that this type of funding is not a specific one-time funding as noted in Handbook:
The deposits are made usually in addition to separate fund raising activities (i.e. flags for Scouts)In addition, the checks have been made to Boy Scout Troop 496 which I believe the church does not want camp fundraising checks made out to "Boy Scouts" but to Ward.As an exception, a stake president or bishop may authorize one group fund-raising activity each year. Such an activity may be held to raise funds for the following purposes only:
1. To help pay the cost of one annual camp or similar activity.
Does anyone have Stake/Ward units also participating in these programs? The Bishopric is in full support of participation in these programs and I know this is done in other Wards in the Stake with implied if not actual consent of Stake leadership. Is this something that should be addressed to Stake Clerk and/or Bishop has possible problem with following Church policies? Just looking to see if anyone else has addressed this type of issue before. Thanks.
