The money that is available to the ATC comes mainly from 2 sources:
- Cadet Subscriptions and fund raising – called non-Public money.
- the Ministry of Defence (MOD) – called Public money.
Your weekly subscriptions are divided up and shared between:
a. The General Purpose Fund – controlled by the Air Cadet Council and used to pay for sporting and welfare activities at Corps and Regional level.
b. The Regional Fund – used to provide Adventure Training equipment for the Region, with some Regions funding cadet travel to Regional sporting events.
c. The Wing Fund – used to pay for Wing sporting events, prizes and medals.
d. The Squadron Fund – controlled by the Squadron Civilian Committee and used to finance local projects such as:
(1) Duke of Edinburgh Award.
(2) Specialist training equipment.
(3) Sporting activities.
(4) General cadet welfare
