Finances and budgeting

Finances and budgeting

In order to facilitate attendance in Jamboree 2023 to as many National Scout Organisations as possible, we are planning to carry out Jamboree Solidarity Operation in line with the previous fundraising initiatives. The funds raised as a result of the SO are going to be distributed following consultations with WOSM Regional Support Centres to cover the cost of participation for Scouts from the NSOs which have no possibility to send Scouts to the Jamboree otherwise

Adhering to the past practice, assistance is going to be allocated to the NSOs from WOSM’s countries in most dire need of financial support. The other two pillars are: Donors Programme and Economic Activation Programme. The expected outcome of the Solidarity Operation is to increase the number of Jamboree 2023 Participants from the countries which have no possibility to send Scouts to the event otherwise.

ECONOMIC ACTIVATION PROGRAMME

Economic Activation Programme is a tailor-made concept for the NSOs who express their interest in participating and go successfully through the recruitment process. Our idea is to point out another benefit in Jamboree preparation stage and to enhance economic education of NSO Scout members. Priority treatment in programme access shall be given to the Scout organizations from A and B WOSM category countries. The programme aims at equipping the Participants with tools and skills essential for an independent fundraising, yet long-term, at encouraging entrepreneurship of the young people or broadening the knowledge of the basic economic mechanisms.

PARTICIPATION FEE

To provide the Jamboree Participants with a just level of participation fee, we are considering to make its amount dependent on the actual amount of the estimated event’ costs and the GDP level per capita of the country where the NSO originates from. Dependency of participation fee on the GDP per capita criterion reflects the WOSM method of calculating membership fees. Hence, depending on the country category, the NSOs shall be expected to pay the fee accordingly:

  • 25% of the average Participant’s fee for category A
  • 50% of the average Participant’s fee for category B
  • 75% of the average Participant’s fee for category C
  • 100% of the average Participant’s fee for category D

DONORS PROGRAMME

Donors Programme is overseen to be addressed to the private and corporate donors whose donations – depending on the individual choices of the donors – might directly cover the cost of registration fee of an individual Scout/or Scout units or be donated as a contribu- tion to the Economic Activation Programme fund.
