Where does the Komsomol get the funds to keep it going?

Such funds come from membership dues, as well as from editorial and publishing activities. The Komsomol also raises money by holding lotteries, etc.

Komsomol funds finance a very wide range of activities. In the past ten years alone, they financed the construction of ten international tourist camps in some of the best-known beauty spots of the USSR, youth hostels, hotels, memorial museums for Komsomol heroes and many other projects.
