Troop Finances

All individuals working with troop funds must be registered adult volunteers with GSRV and complete a background check and new volunteer orientation. As stewards of troop funds, troop volunteers have an obligation to act reasonably and responsibly with money the girls have earned. It’s important to manage troop finances responsibly, track spending, and keep good records including itemized receipts for all expenditures.

· Managing Troop Funds use these resources help outline how to earn and manage troop money

· Troop Bank Account RecordChanges to troop bank account information (authorized signers, change of address on record for Troop Leaders and/or Troop Treasurer) require a visit to a Wells Fargo branch, as soon as reasonably possible, to make the necessary changes.  In addition, Troop Treasurers must submit this online form after making the change at Wells Fargo.

· Troop Finance Report. GSRV requires that every troop must submit this online form by June 15 each year.
