If your troop has decided to disband this year, please provide all of
the information requested in the Disbanding Troop Form so girls and
adults in the troop can be properly managed, the troop can officially
be removed and the troop bank account can be closed.
Please read the details below BEFORE submitting your form:
If a troop disbands
The girls are encouraged to use existing money (while
memberships are still current) prior to disbanding (ie. year end
celebration, donation to a local community project). Money is not to
be given to individual girls or adults per IRS regulations. If funds
remain, the money is to be turned over to the council.
If a troop splits or merges
If ALL girls from one troop merge into another troop, ALL of
the funds from the old troop are to be transferred to the new troop
leader. If a troop splits, the funds are to be divided proportionately
to the number of girls in each new troop.
EXAMPLE: A troop of 10 girls splits into two distinct troops. The
original troop has $300 in it's treasury. Divide $300 by 10 girls =
$30 per girl. The funds are then distributed accordingly to the new
troops: $150 to each troop.
If a girl transfers to a new troop
The funds in the troop account are to be divided
proportionately to the number of girls in the troop (see scenario
above for a troop splitting) at the time the girl leaves the troop.
The check is payable to the new troop, not the girl or parent.
If a girl leaves and becomes a Juliette Girl Scout
The funds are to be divided proportionately to the number of
girls in the troop (see scenario above for a troop splitting).
Juliettes are not allowed to have checking accounts so the troop is to
send a check to GSMW with a completed Juliette Program Credit Deposit Form.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will NOT be able to save this form.
Please be prepared to provide information about your troop girls
plans going forward as well as uploading troop financial
information (i.e. most recent bank statement, receipts, financial
tracking spreadsheet, etc.).
