I’m going to take this as a good sign for the national council vote in coming weeks. If this comes about to retain the current policy, the fall out on the corporate funding side is going to be tough to overcome.

My grandson’s Troop just completed a fundraiser a couple of months ago. Income was down but we concluded it was so because of two reasons. Personal income is down. The Scoutmaster had some local companies tell him they wanted to wait to donate until the current issue is resolved because they will not contribute if gays are allowed. He does have some reasonably substantial pledges if the organization remains exactly like it is now.

Another group I belong to also had a fundraiser last month and our income was down. Again we concluded that it has more to do with a decrease in discretionary income right now.
