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.
