June 3, 2014 at 6:59 AM ET

How can you make sure your child's booster club is protected from theft? Sandra Englund of Parent Booster USA, a group that advises parent-run nonprofits, recommends all booster clubs institute, at a minimum, a few basic procedures:

  • Cash should be counted at the event site, and with at least two people present. 
  • All cash should be deposited immediately. 
  • Make sure bank statements are regularly reviewed by someone without check-signing authority. 
  • Booster club boards should adopt annual budgets and conduct reviews once a year.
