Who runs HSS?
HSS is a volunteer based organization. Nobody is paid. Some volunteers called vistaraks commit to volunteering several years full-time. Some volunteers called pracharaks commit their whole life for HSS work. Day to day activities are managed by a team of volunteer officers appointed by Board of Directors as per its bylaws.
Does HSS send money to India?
No. HSS uses its money for its own activities and does not send money abroad. There are many other organisations in the community for that purpose.
Is there a membership fee? How do you raise funds?
HSS is a volunteer based organization, not a member based organization. HSS has a unique method of managing its finances. There is no membership fee and there are no fund raising events for its operations. At the Guru Poornima festival, swayamsevaks may contribute financially and make their offering to the Bhagwa Dhwaj, as it is considered to be their Guru.
