Moledina Fee Subsidy Program
Scouts Canada believes strongly that social and financial circumstances should not act as barriers to youth enrolment within our community programs. Through the generous donations and support of numerous families and community members, Central Escarpment Council is proud to offer financial assistance to local Scouts Canada groups who are helping youth members who would otherwise be unable to afford to participate in Scouts Canada programs.
A fee reimbursement program has been developed to help local groups accommodate local members who may need fee subsidies, reduced fees, termed repayment or other forms of fee support.
Central Escarpment Council may reimburse up to a maximum of 50% of the council portion of the membership fee if a local group is unable to provide complete assistance. Groups wishing to access a reimbursement will be required to complete and submit a subsidy application and copies of their group’s bank statements (3-months worth). Groups should ensure that the members are registered and on the MMS prior to submitting an application.
Please note that receiving a fee subsidy in one session does not necessarily mean the group will be eligible in subsequent sessions. Groups must apply for a subsidy each time they are needed. Parents, guardians or members should therefore be encouraged to make as much financial commitment towards their membership fee as possible, perhaps with a time payment plan.
Applications and disbursements will be granted on a first come, first serve basis. Available subsidy money is limited. Groups are strongly encouraged to make a donation from time-to-time to this fund, or to top up their own efforts to keep the doors open to youth in the community.
