Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on how to get approval for money earning activities. Any and all fundraising MUST be council approved to insure we are within our 501c nonprofit guidelines. The Money Earning Activity Troop Application form needs to be completed and submitted for approval. We cannot do any form of fund raising or money earning activities without taking this step. It is very important that this procedure is followed. Once the form is completed it can be submitted to “E” at firstname.lastname@example.org for approval. Also, keep in mind, that any donations to your troop in the amount of $250 or more need to be deposited into the Council general account and then you request the money from there into your troop account. Be sure any donations received reference your troop number.
Below is information on how to access the form through our site, as well as a quick link to the form. The Policies and Procedures can also be found online in case anyone wants a thorough explanation of Money Earning Activities. The Money Earning activity section begins on page 14 of the Policies and Procedures.
