$$ FUNDRAISING AND SCOUT ACCOUNTS $$

There is some confusion within our units about the use of Scout Accounts and
how to manage the funds of each individual Scout.

Here are some helpful links and documents to help clear the air in regards
to money and making sure that we do not violate any IRS Rules and Regulations.

Changes Made to My.Scouting.org

In an effort to move towards simplification, we have consolidated the two volunteer sites,
myscouting.org and my.scouting.org. The remaining links in the legacy myscouting.org were
moved to my.scouting.org and appear in the Menu drop down list under Legacy Web Tools.

The links include:
 
•       BeAScout
•       Best Practices Portal
•       Internet Advancement
•       Internet Rechartering
•       Journey to Excellence
•       Manage Member ID
•       National Safety Council Defensive Driving Course
•       Service Hours Reporting
•       Tour and Activity Plan
•       Voice of the Scout
 
Access to these services is still dependent on one’s registered position. So for example,
if your myscouting.org login gave you access to Journey to Excellence in your Council Tools
on the left side menu, then you will now access this same dashboard by logging into my.scouting.org,
select Menu and then Legacy Web Tools in the dropdown list.
 
We also moved the ability to manage your member/person ID’s that was previously located in the profile
section to a new tool called Manage Member ID.  If you have multiple member numbers
(for example you are registered in more than one council) and you need to add or change one and set as
primary for your my.scouting.org role, then select Manage Member ID from the drop down list.

Once the change is made you must log out and log back in to have the system recognize the alternate membership,
its corresponding security and tools access.

This consolidation was made to eliminate ongoing frustration about needing to go to two different places.
We hope you agree this is a positive step forward!
