Finances will be handled through Automated Clearing House (ACH) withdrawals. Troop should make deposits into their troop bank account and the council will withdraw the cookie balance due.
The GCNWI Clover Go option allows troops to accept credit cards at booth sites with no cost to troops. Card payments are processed through the Clover Go app, downloaded to your phone or tablet. Card readers are not required, but you may use a Clover card reader along with the app.
Step 1: Review the Clover Go Training for Troop Administrators
Please note: Troops are welcome to use other credit card processors, such as Clover, but please note that this is the last year that Girl Scouts GCNWI will cover Clover credit card fees. Our partnership with Clover will conclude August 31, 2024. We recommend collecting credit card payments with the Digital Cookie App to avoid fees and to streamline the process for next year.
To ensure our members and their families can confirm that Girl Scouting does NOT have a relationship with Planned Parenthood and does NOT take a position on abortion or birth control, we are providing you with a fact sheet that explains this in writing. We encourage adults who are supporting girls during the cookie program to print out this fact sheet and carry it with them in order to provide accurate, factual information about our position on several divisive social issues.
