Eagle Project Approval Sequence:
- Develop project in conjunction with unit leadership and appropriate organization. Remember that it MUST be a not for profit organization
and may not be for your Scout unit or for Scouting in general. It is
the practice of the Del-Mi District that blood drives are not approved
as an Eagle projects.
- Write preliminary plan in Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project Workbook (sometime referred to as the Life to Eagle Packet).
- Secure all unit level signatures in workbook prior to seeking district approval to begin your project. You MAY NOT begin your project until final approval is given.
- Contact Mr. Dave Bardos at 317-844-3223 or email@example.com to
schedule time for district approval. Projects are approved by Mr.
Bardos (or his designee) on the following days between 6:30 and 7 p.m.
at Noblesville First United Methodist Church (2051 Monument Street
Noblesville, IN). If needed, Mr. Bardos will inform you of any date,
time or location changes.
- 1st Thursday of the month - Del-Mi Committee meeting
- 2nd Thursday of the month - Del-Mi Roundtable
- 3rd Thursday of the month - Del-Mi Eagle Boards of Review
- Fundraising outside the Scout’s family, unit, chartered organization, or the project's benefiting organization? An Eagle Scout Service Project Fundraising Application (found in the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook) is required. You must obtain approval from the project beneficiary and your unit leader, and then submit the fundraising application to one of the Del-Mi District's professional staff
(a scanned copy sent via email is preferred) at least two weeks in
advance of your fundraising efforts. You will be contacted if it cannot
be approved or if adjustments must be made. Scouts must use the Eagle
Scout Service Project Fundraising Application, not the Unit Money
When properly completed, the form is quickly reviewed, approved and
returned to the Scout. However, one question that is confusing some
Scouts is near the bottom of the page:
â€‹“If people or companies will be
asked for donations of money, materials, supplies or tools*, how will
this be done and who will do it?
*You must attach a list of prospective donor names and what they will be
asked to donate. This is not required for an event like a car wash.”
This question is simply asking for a list of
companies and people that the Scout is considering asking for
donations, and what exactly they will be asking for from these sources.
Again, the most important part of this application is simply that it
must be filled out and approved before the Life Scout can begin
fundraising or asking companies and people for donations.
