Fundraising

Fundraising activities must adhere to both the national and provincial guidelines. Prior to any fundraising, review the:

BC Council Standards and Fundraising Guidelines (PDF)
National Fundraising Development Policy and Guidelines (Member Zone)

Contact your parent commissioner if you are unsure about any proposal. Where the National fundraising guidelines differ from the BC Fundraising Guidelines, BC Guiding Members must follow the guidelines set out by BC Guiding.

To request fundraising approval (outside GGC cookie campaigns) use:
Fundraiser Approval Application Form – FR1 (Member Zone)

If fundraising for travel, the trip needs pre-authorization by an Assessor before fundraising approval can be given. Use the Travel Pre-authorization – SG8 (Member Zone) to request approval.

Important: All fundraising, which is not solely from cookie sales and which totals $5,000 or more, must be approved at the area level. Frequency and method of reporting to the area will be determined by the area.
