The International Development Fund (ID Fund) provides financial support for special projects and the development and the expansion of ISGF and support to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM).
It was at the 4th General Assembly in 1961 that the National Scout and Guide Fellowships first agreed to make a voluntary contribution so that the per capita membership subscription would remain unchanged. In 1966 the ISGF was able to make its first donation to WOSM and WAGGGS for their development programme.
The ID Fund is managed by ISGF World Committee. Expenditure from the fund is approved on project by project basis by a majority vote. 100% of Donations and Contributions directed to Projects, go to the Projects.
