Why We Pay Dues

Commitment: You are making a continuous financial and personal commitment to your council and its goals.
Long-term planning: Your council will be able to project what its financial resources will be in the future, making it possible to plan long-term actions and charities.
Independence from outside pressure: Your council will not have to constantly chase for donations from many sources and be at the mercy of those sources.
Accountability: Your council is accountable to you and the council members, but not to the donors.
Supreme and State Fees: Your council has to pay a Per Capita (dues) fee per member each year to the Supreme Council. Also, your council has to pay a Per Capita (dues) fee per member each year to the State Council. Your dues fund these payments.
Charity Donations Reduced:  Your Council must pay Supreme and State Council fees for those Brothers who do not pay their Council dues. This reduces the funds available to your Council for it's donations to your Parish and community.
