All troops/service units (SU) that collect or spend funds for the business of Girl Scouts must open a troop/SU checking account/savings account.
- Each adult opening a troop account or signing on a troop account must have completed a volunteer application, passed a council background check and be a registered Girl Scout member.
- If you're not opening or making any changes to your troop/SU account, be sure to report the account information to your council staff contact using the Bank Account Information card.
There are two methods of opening a Girl Scout bank account— the Bank of America method and the non-Bank of America method. The method you'll use is based on the location of your troop.
