First, it is imperative that you deposit any money collected as soon
as possible. It is suggested that Troop Cookie Managers (TCMs) make a
deposit each Monday, after a booth sale weekend. Parents and other
adult volunteers should coordinate with the TCM on any deposits.
Girl Scouts of Hawai`i has “cookie accounts” at both Bank of
Hawaii and First Hawaiian Bank. Pre-printed deposits slips are
available at the Girl Scout office or refer to the Cookie Bank Deposit
Instructions. DO NOT try to deposit your cookie money at one of these
banks without the correct account number. Girl Scouts of Hawai`i has
several accounts at these banks, so having the correct account number
is ESSENTIAL. We highly recommend to NOT use night deposit drop boxes
as there is no way to receive a receipt or double check the amount the
tellers count. Troops will be responsible to cover any discrepancy the
bank brings to our attention.
Be sure to write your Name, Troop number and Service Unit Name on
your deposit slip. If you don’t provide this information, it’s nearly
impossible to tell what troop should get credit for this deposit and
your troop will not receive credit for this deposit.
“Gift of Caring” donations should be deposited SEPARATELY from
money collected for sales of cookies. Be sure to write “GOC” on your
deposit slip if the money is for “Gift of Caring”. Hold on to your
receipts till the end of season. You may be asked by Council to
provide the deposit receipts for proof of deposit. After you deposit
the cookie money, be sure that the deposit is logged in eBudde in the payments tab.
