All Girl Scout Troops need to set up a Troop Account with one of the three approved banks: Wells Fargo, Union Bank, or Mechanics Bank. Bank of the Sierra is an additional newly approved bank for any troop where one of its branch location is located within their SU. Troop Leaders must have council approval before setting up the account and use the Bank Account Certificate of Authorization. All these banking options may have different ways to set up and change accounts, varying fees and online access procedures.
Troop Leaders should keep records/receipts of all expenses in order to be ready to submit their Financial Report at the end of the year. All Financial Guidelines are detailed in the various documents below.
