Helping girls decide what they want to do, and coaching them as they earn and manage money to pursue their goals, is an integral part of the Girl Scout program. Girl Scout troops are funded by money earned through council-sponsored product sale activities (such as the Girl Scout Cookie Program) and troop money-earning activities. When the troop is earning and spending money, the troop needs to set up a bank account.
Troops in Eastern Missouri can open an account at the bank of their choice using the Prospective Financial Institution (Bank) Letter. Please contact your VSC for a copy of the letter.
However, to ease the burden of bank shopping for troop volunteers, Eastern Missouri has entered into an agreement with a few banks to make this process easier. These “Preferred Banks” have agreed to waive monthly banking fees and offer a streamlined process to open a troop account. Preferred Banks are further classified as Premier Preferred or Standard Preferred. Click on one of the links below for information on opening an account at one of our Preferred Banks.
