Charters

As in the Boy Scouts Bankruptcy Plan
NOTICE: Much more details and charts coming soon.

• There are tens of thousands of churches, schools, and several other entities that are Charters.

• Liability releases for these non-debtor third parties in the BSA plan, potentially extending to tens of thousands of entities, is unprecedented, and part of what makes this a landmark bankruptcy if settled as currently proposed.

Charters, As defined on the Boy Scouts website...

"A chartered organization can be a place of worship, school, or other community group that has the same interests as the Boy Scouts of America (BSA)."

"Annually the local council enters into an agreement with the chartered organization granting them a charter. This charter enables the organization or group to use the Scouting program under adult leadership they approve of in order to accomplish its objectives and to serve the organization's youth and families."
