5 Important First Steps As the new club treasurer there are some important first steps that you must take. Find out the name of theadult advisor (treasurer)who will be helping you. This person will help you learn your new skills, make sure you are keeping accurate records, andmentor you along the way. Go to the bank and take a copy of your club s minutes showing that you are the newly elected youth treasurerand have your name added to your club s signature card. This will allow you to sign checks from your club s checking account. It is a best practice to go to the bank with your parent and the other new signers on the card. Before you take office, ask your club leader or adult advisor to show youlast year s annual review to verify that a review was completed (Form D). This is important to ensure accuracy of your financial records before the treasurer book is transferred from one treasurer to the next. Ask your club leader or adult advisor to show you last year s MN 4-H Annual Club Financial Report(Form B).Make sure the ending checkbook balance on the form matches the beginning balance in your checkbook. Work with your adult advisor to set up a budget planning meeting for your club. Often a budget committee includes the club officers and volunteers. The budget committee proposes a budget to the club for the upcoming year (October 1 st of current year September 30 th of the upcoming year). Work as a group to determine what funds are needed to support the club goals, and make a plan on how the club will raise the funds. Use the Club Proposed Budget (Form C). Present the proposed budget for approval at the first possible club meeting (October or November). Make sure the budget is discussed, dated, signed by the secretary, and documented in the secretary s minutes. A copy of the completed budget form should be put in your treasurer s book behind the Budget and Financial Forms tab, and another copy turned into the Extension Office with the other chartering documents. It is important that you and the adult advisor meet regularly to manage the clubs finances so you can provide an accurate, up to date report at each club meeting. If the parent/guardian of the youth treasurer is the adult advisor you will need to meet with the adult verifier once a month as well. Rules Pertaining to the Signature Card and Checking Account NEW in 2013: Adult Advisor/Treasurer: Note: The Adult Treasurer title has been changed to Adult Advisor. It is best practice to not have the youth treasurer and adult advisor related or living in the same household. However, the 4-H program realizes that this may not be possible and the youth will learn better record keeping skills if the parent/guardian is working side by side with their child. The requirement for each position is listed below. Pay special attention to the rules in place if the adult advisor is the parent/guardian/or living in the same household as the youth treasurer.

16 Activity #9 Reconciling the Bank Statement Use Worksheet #1 & 2 for this Activity Each month you will need to reconcile your bank statement to ensure you are keeping accurate records. Reconciling the bank statement allows you to keep track of all the checks that have been cashed, and ensure that all deposits were credited to the club checking account. The bank statement will almost always show a higher checkbook balance than the balance that is recorded in the checkbook ledger(s). The reason for this discrepancy is because there may be checks that you have written,but the person you wrote the check to,has not cashed the check. You have already deducted the check from the bank account in the checkbook ledger, but the bank has not. There also may be deposits that have not yet been recorded at the bank. You have recorded them in the checkbook, but the bank had not put the money into the checking account by the date the statement was printed Experience 1: Understanding the Bank Statement You will need Worksheet 1 & 2 What is the beginning checking account balance? What is the ending checking account balance? How many deposits are recorded on this banks statement? How many debits (checks written) are recorded on this bank statement? 15 This is the October excel checkbook ledger Worksheet #1

17 Experience 2: Reconciling the Excel Checkbook Ledger 1. Find the column in your excel checkbook ledger that has Cleared from Bank (cleared from bank means that the check has been cashed and the bank has record of this). 2. Look in the Business Checking portion of the Bank statement. Put an (x) in your excel checkbook ledger, under the Cleared from Bank column next to the transaction you see on the bank statement. Put a behind each deposit on the bank statement after you have recorded it in the excel checkbook ledger so you know that you have recorded it. 3. Was your deposit for $42.00 on the bank statement? 4. What check number is listed in your checkbook ledger, but not listed on the bank statement? 5. What does the * symbol mean on the bank statement? NOTE: Outstanding Checks and Deposits: At the end of each month you will run off a copy of the excel checkbook ledger and file it in your treasurer book. Check #102 and a $42.00 deposit had not cleared the bank as of the last statement. When you receive your next bank statement you will have to go back to this form in the book and manually check off if you see that the deposit has been added and the check has been cashed. NOTE: Outstanding Checks: If you notice that an issued check has not been cashed for over a month, you will need to call the recipient of the check and let them know they should cash it as soon as possible so you can keep your records up to date. If they have misplaced a check you will need to void out the original check and rewrite them a new check. Experience 3: Completing the Reconciliation Form (You will need a calculator for this activity). Now that you know what checks have cleared the bank, it is time to fill in the reconciliation form. This form can be found on the back of the bank statement, or you can use the electronic excel version. If using the excel version the computer will calculate all of the numbers for you. Complete the activity by following the instructions in the box below. Steps for completing the Monthly Reconciliation Form Outstanding Deposits Record all deposits that are listed in your paper checkbook ledger, but are not on this bank (Located on upper left side of the statement in this section. (These deposits do not have a in front of them). Monthly Reconciliation Form) Total A Total all outstanding deposits and record in this box Outstanding Checks (Located on the bottom of the Monthly Reconciliation Form) Total B Steps to Reconcile/ Balance Account (Located on the upper right corner of the Monthly Reconciliation Form) List all checks that are recorded in the paper checkbook ledger that do NOT have a in the column that indicates the check has cleared the bank. Total all outstanding checks and record the amount in this box. 1) Record the ending balance from your paper checkbook ledger. 2) Record the number you have written in Total A 3) Record the number you have written in Total B 4) Record any bank fees 5) Record any interest earned 6) Take the total ending balance (1) subtract total outstanding deposits (2) add total outstanding checks (3) subtract bank fees (4) add interest (5) = equals adjusted balance (6) NOTE: (6) needs to equal bank statement ending balance. 16

18 Use Worksheets #1 and 2 to complete this activity. Monthly Reconciliation Form This form should be used each month to compare your bank statement ending balance and your checkbook register to make sure they are balanced or equal each month. Date of Bank Statement: Outstanding Deposits Steps to Reconcile/Balance Account 1) Ending balance from your checkbook ledger Record all deposits that are recorded in your checkbook ledger but are not on this bank statement. Date Amount 2) Subtract total outstanding deposits (A) $ - 3) Add total outstanding checks (B) + $0.00 Total Outstanding Deposits $ - Total A 4) Subract bank fees 5) Add interest earned + - 6) Adjusted balance (should equal bank statement ending balance). = $ - Check # Outstanding Checkings (Not included in your statement) Written To: Amount Total Outstanding Checks $ - Total B * Bank fees & interest earned will show up on your bank statement and should be recorded in your checkbook ledger AFTER you balance (reconcile) your account. Updated 10/24/13 1. Are there any bank fees on the bank statement? 2. Was there any interest earned on the bank statement? 3.

Here is an example: o This is the treasurer report for (read date). o The balance as of the last report, was $ (read the amount), on (read the previous club meeting date). o Money received since last meeting was $ (read each amount, who it was from and what it was for). o The total amount received was $ (read the amount Box B). o Expenses paid since last meeting were (Read each amount, who the check was written to, and what it was written for). o The total amount spent was $ (read the amount in box C). o Our closing balance is $ (read the amount). Present any outstanding bills that need to be paid: (Look at example below) o We have a bill from Ace Hardware_ for $ _43.24 (amount) for _the club flower box (what it was for). Have club members pass a motion to approve payments before you pay the bill if it wasn t previously budgeted. Activity #11 Filing the monthly documents and signing the Excel Checkbook Ledger You will need Worksheet #1 for this activity. At the close of each month you will run off the excel checkbook ledger and file behind the correct monthly tab. 1. Make sure all receipts are attached for each expense written. 2. Make sure you have Itemized Income Forms for each deposit made in that month and that all receipts (both bank and cash) are attached. 3. File the Monthly Treasurer Report 4. Include the Reconciliation Form 5. Include the bank statement. Signing the Excel Checkbook Ledger: 1. Youth Treasurer Sign this document if you believe your records are accurate and complete 2. Adult Advisor Reviews all of the information behind the monthly tab in the treasurer book, including the bank statement. 3. Adult Verifier (Needed only if the Adult Advisor is the parent/guardian/or lives in the same home as the Youth Treasurer. Reviews all of the information as well and signs off. Remember: An adult outside of the Youth Treasurer home MUST review the bank statements to make sure that the money listed in the account matches what the bank has. Note: Companies lose money through embezzlement when only one person is keeping the records and checking the bank statements. Two sets of eyes can prevent anyone, even honest people, from taking money. 20

22 Fundraising in the Name of 4-H The Minnesota 4-H Program depends on the local generation of resources to support the operation of the program. Dues/fees, fundraisers, donations, and other external funding sources are each acceptable methods for funding the 4-H Program. Any funds raised in the name of 4-H must be for the purpose of the 4-H club as outlined in the sample Minnesota 4-H constitution and in accordance with the club s yearly goals.the following is a summary of the policy on the use of public funds, the process for selecting income generation activities, and procedures that must be followed for each type of income generation activity. Contact your local Extension Office for greater detail on income generation activities. Fundraising forms can be found with the rest of the treasurer materials. All fundraising must be pre-approved by the local 4-H Program Coordinator at least 10 days prior to the event by submitting an Income Generation Application completed by a screened adult volunteer. The Program Coordinator will review the application to ensure the fundraiser is an approved activity. Use the Fundraising Verification Form when counting income from the fundraiser. o Include this form with the Itemized income form as it is a summary for the deposit. Funds raised must be recorded on the Income Generation Follow-Up Report Form, submitted to the Extension Office, reported at the next club meeting and filed behind the Fundraising tab in the Treasurer Book. If your club has funds that clearly exceed one year operating funds, generating income through fundraising or other income sources is not advised. Any fundraising effort needs to be an activity in which 4-H members can learn skills (public relations, communication skills, bookkeeping, salesmanship, etc). The activity selected must abide by federal, state, and local law as well as University of Minnesota 4-H policies. Disbursement of funds must be for the good of the total 4-H group and must be made through a majority vote of the members. Funds cannot be used for personal financial gain (pocket money for purchasing personal items), or be distributed solely based on the level of participation in the fundraiser. Selecting Income Generation Activities A clear goal needs to be established for why the funds are being raised. The decision to fundraise and what type of fundraiser must be decided upon amongst the youth. The adults play an advisory role in the process. Decisions made must be recorded in the group s secretary minutes and kept in the permanent record book. Decide who will lead the activity and be in charge of the fundraising event. 21

23 Income Generation Application: Income Generation Follow Up Report Income Transaction Form You must turn this form into the Extension Office 10 days prior to any fundraising event The fundraiser MUST be approved by the 4-H Program Coordinator!! You MUST turn this form into the Extension Office 10 days following the event! Make sure you report your totals at your next club meeting and file this form behind the correct monthly tab in your treasurer book. Income Generation Activities Dues/Fees A small monetary due can be charged toclub members for membership to help defray costs. All dues and fees must be tracked on an Itemized Income Form and attached to the Checkbook Ledger in the month in which the funds were deposited. Silent Auctions No live animals. You may have a certificate that shows the animal, but the animal has to go directly from the hands of the person donating to the person who is purchasing the animal. Receipt all income generated from the auction. o The receipt needs to clearly state the value of the item and the amount the buyer paid for the item. Only the portion over and above the value of the item is tax deductible. Events Fundraising events must clearly state how the funds will be used. 22

24 The event must have a minimum target of 40% net profit to be returned to the 4-H program after covering expenses. Prizes awarded must be comparable to or less than those received for participation in a 4-H event during county fair. (Ribbons, medals, trophies, small premiums). Jackpot Shows are NOT allowed. Risk must be managed o All 4-H safety rules and risk management practices must be followed by all participants. Example: Horse helmet rule for all youth and adults participating. o Make sure location and facility you are using is safe. o Purchase event insurance to cover all adult participants and those who are currently not enrolled as 4-H members. Spectators are never covered at a 4-H event. o 4-H may not be involved in the sale of alcohol or tobacco products, including events sponsored by other businesses or organizations. o If the event involves animals all Board of Animal Health Regulations must be followed. Food Sales Food Sales refer to the operation of a dining facility that will be serving food to the public. Check with the local county food licensing division, such as Public Health, regarding the need for a license to sell food as well as other safety regulations. Gambling/Games of Chance Gambling/Games of Chance are NOT allowed as a 4-H Income Generation Activity. In Minnesota an activity is considered gambling if three elements are presents: A fee is paid, a chance to win something, or to win a prize of monetary value. Games of chance include: Bingo, pull tabs, tip boards, paddle wheels, raffles, etc. 4-H clubs are not allowed to apply for a gaming license. If a club currently has one they are not allowed to use it. Acceptable Alternatives: o Holding a drawing for a product that an individual is eligible to win whether or not they make a purchase or brought an item to contribute is not considered gambling. o Accepting a donation from another organization that conducts the game of chance. Example: The Lion s club can host a BINGO night, allow the 4-H program to help, and donate the money to the 4-H club. Product Sales Product sales refer to the sale of tangible items such as candy bars, fruit sales, bake sales. Donations, Gifts, Grants, Monetary and Non-Cash Donations Please consult your local 4-H Program Coordinator before accepting or applying for any items listed above. o Donations cannot be accepted on behalf of a specific individual. o If the donor requests a 501c3 the donation or grant must go through the Minnesota 4-H Foundation. o Do not accept donations of firearms, vehicles or live animals 23
