Once Ann approves the fundraising activity, you can then submit funds for deposit or a check request to us. Send all check requests via email and we will do our best to get them out within 3 business days. When making purchases, please use the attached Tax Exempt Form. When dropping off deposits to us please send us either an email or text to coordinate a time, especially if it contains cash.

We will keep track of all monies that go in and out of your account by team. You will also need to keep a spreadsheet of this information. Prior to each HBC meeting (which is the first Monday of the month) we will send you an email with your account information. You’ll need to compare that to your records and let us know immediately of any discrepancies.
