WHAT ARE SUBSCRIPTIONS AND CAPITATION?
What exactly are Subs for? The general held rule of thumb handed on from one generation to the next is 1/3, 1/3 and 1/3. That is 1/3 of the amount is for capitation to District, County and HQ; 1/3 for rentals, building maintenance, heating and lighting and insurance costs etc; and the final 1/3 for general scouting activities and equipment. The Annual Capitation fee is paid out of part of your annual subscription. It is the name we give to the annual membership fee required to belong to the Scout Association. It is a mandatory lump sum paid by every group in April. This fee is collected and distributed between District, County and Scout HQ to cover their costs.
WHY DO WE FUND RAISE?
We try to fund raise at 5th Brackley to help subsidise the subs, keeping them low; some groups just rely on subs alone BUT their subs are considerably much, much higher.
Please support us with our Fundraising efforts to enable us to keep 5th Brackley Scout Group subs as low as possible and fill in a Gift Aid form.
