General Questions - Eligible projects
Who can Submit a project?
Anyone who is a recognized member of a NSO/NSA as well as the regional and world bodies of the WOSM.
What is required from a NSO/NSA to use the platform?
The platform is open to all NSOs/NSAs, however a NSO/NSA has the option to opt-out of the platform. To be able to make full use of the platform, each NSO/NSA has to appoint an NSO/NSA Administrator that will review and approve the national and/or local projects prior their publishing on the platform, and facilitate all communication on project related matters.
Once the National Administrator has assumed his/her role, the platform will be available to the members of the NSO/NSA to start collecting donations for their projects.
Who determines if an NSO/NSA participates on the platform?
The NSO/NSA determinates if they participate on the platform. If the NSO/NSA determines to not participate on the platform it means that no projects of this NSO/NSA and its local members can be published on the platform and thus no donations can be collected. However, their members can still be active on the platform as individual donors or supporters.
Which NSOs/NSAs are active on the Scout Donation Platform?
The following NSOs/NSAs are already welcome to submit their project as they already.
The complete list of NSOs/NSAs will be published ASAP
