You may raise funds towards travel expenses and program fees for two years after the time of travel.  The amount “earned” is split 50:50 with the chapter. Funds are kept track of and credited to your program balance.  


Every four weeks, 6 volunteers are required to staff bingos.  Each volunteer raises $50 ($25 for the chapter, $25 for the individual account), with $75 for the Captain (also split 50:50 with the chapter).
