Fund Raising Policy

posted Oct 3, 2017, 1:56 PM by Eric Clinton   [ updated May 28, 2018, 1:30 PM ]
 effective Sept. 1 2017.

All Cadets are required to take part in the following three major fundraising events:
  • Fall Tag Days - at least 2 shifts. 
  • OPC Lottery tickets sales - sell one entire booklet of ACL OPC Lottery tickets (and return stubs & monies). 
  • Spring Tag Days - at least 2 shifts. 
Every 3 Sqn Annual Recreational trip has a "cost per cadet" that is paid for by our SSC, primarily from fundraising. For some longer trips there may be a portion that is required to be covered by the Cadet, above what the SSC covers. The expectation is each cadet take responsibility for their "cost per cadet" portion of the trip covered by the SSC. They can do this by participating in Tag Days and sell Air Cadet League Lottery tickets.

A cadet who does NOT
  • Tag for 2 shifts in the Fall Tag Day 
  • Tag for 2 shifts in the Spring Tag Day 
  • Sell one entire booklet of ACL OPC Lottery tickets (and return stubs & monies). 
will be required to pay for 1/3 of the “cost per cadet” amount originally covered by the SSC, per activity not completed. (example: if a trip costs $300/cadet and a Cadet misses Spring tagging, then they will be required to pay $100 to attend the trip)
  • A Cadet not willing to cover the cost will not be eligible to attend the annual recreational trip. 
  • If a cadet is unable to attend one of the three required activities, due to unforeseen conflict, then the Cadet will be assisted by the SSC with an alternative way to fund-raise the 1/3 "cost per cadet" amount. 
  • Only Cadets who join prior to the Spring Tag Day will be eligible for the cadet annual recreational trip.
