Cash and Check Management Policy for Church Collections
In order to be consistent with UUA policies and best practices, the policy for handling the church collections of cash/and or checks is as follows: Two unrelated persons who are church members will be responsible for counting the cash and checks received in collections/fund-raising activities. Every effort will be made to rotate the volunteers so that the same two people are not repeatedly working together. The funds should be in the custody of two people at all times until deposited in the designated location. The collection must not leave the building until it is taken to the bank to be deposited. This policy is for all funds received unless an exception is recommended by the Treasurer and approved by the ParCom Executive Committee. This policy will be reviewed periodically to ensure that it is consistent with the best UUA practices.
