Click HERE for the 2019 Partnership Report, current as of December 20th, 2019.  The report has been updated from the November version to include any JTE forms received, and the latest Popcorn sales, Friends of Scouting contributions, and year-to-date totals for any Gondola Club donations connected to a specific unit.  Seventeen units have achieved Partner status, and another 23 units just need to turn in their JTE form by the end of the year to become Partners, as they've met the financial and camping goals.  Another 32 units are within $500 of the financial goal, with six of the 32 having already turned in their JTE forms.  As a reminder, all contributions and JTE forms need to be received at the Scout Office by the end of the year in order for units to achieve Partner status.  The benefits calculator below can help your unit determine the value of being a Partner unit, and the return-on-investment of making donations now to achieve Partner status.  Please contact your District Executive if you have any questions about the information in the report.
