ACH stands for Automated Clearing House and refers to an electronic banking network used for direct deposit and electronic bill payment. If your paycheck is direct deposited into your bank account, then you are already using ACH. ACH is employed by many different institutions and is already in use by many Girl Scout councils around the country.
Fall Sweets & Treats Program
The 2021 fall product program is almost here! Girls will begin selling nuts, candies, magazines, and more from October 4th - November 7th. This is a council-sponsored family and friends’ program that helps troops and girls fund their Girl Scout year. Girls are empowered with key business skills, such as, Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics.
Girls also learn facts about endangered species, create their own personalized avatars, have a chance to earn patches including one that looks just like them, and even the opportunity to win their very own mascot!
Don't wait to get started. Submit your Parent Permission Form and Troop Agreement today! Troops that do not have an ACH Authorization Form on file be sure to submit to ensure your troop can participate. Check out the FAQ on the Automated Clearing House program if you need more information.
