Girl Scout troops are funded by money earned through council-sponsored activities (such as the Girl Scout Cookie Program) and other fundraising efforts. Find out how to set up a bank account, collect online payments and submit a Year-End report below.
Troops in Eastern Missouri can open an account at the bank of their choice using the Prospective Financial Institution (Bank) Letter. Please contact your Community Engagement Manager for a copy of the letter.
To make this process easier, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri has an agreement with a few “Preferred Banks”. These institutions 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.
|Premier Preferred||Standard Preferred|

You can collect information as well. Have an event coming up and need parent contact information or a waiver along with the registration fee? The new tool lets leaders add custom form fields to gather necessary information associated with payments.
