Building a Budget

To help you prepare for your ideal year in Scouting, we have provided a budget worksheet  for your unit. 

To develop your unit budget, complete the worksheet with the unit leader and committee at your unit’s annual program planning conference, and then share it with your unit’s Scouting parents.  Be sure to keep parents involved and informed.  Your unit’s program calendar and budget information needs to be communicated regularly to families, especially at the start of the program year.
