How do I register to be a treasurer?

The Volunteer Event Organizer at your event will need to email you a link to register as a treasurer for your event. You can only register as treasurer using this link. If you haven't received an email, please check with your event organizer to make sure they nominated you as treasurer. Or give us a call – we'll be happy to help you out!

Why do I need to have a background check, and how do I go about it?

In order to protect our donors and the children who are honored at our events, we require background checks for all of our treasurers. Instructions on how to take the background check will be emailed to you once you are registered as a treasurer. This screening includes a Criminal Background Check, as well as the National Sex Offender registry, and may only be completed online. The background check takes no longer than 10 minutes and does not incur a cost to any of our volunteers. St. Baldrick's will at no point be in possession of your social security number.

I registered to be a treasurer and can't locate the Treasurer Instructions and Quiz.

Click here to read the Treasurer Instructions. Click here to take the Treasurer Quiz. You can find both items in your Members Area, located in the "Resource Lounge." Click on the tab "VEO and Core Committee" then "Treasurers" to download the Treasurer Instructions and take the Treasurer Quiz.

I am at my event and have run out of check and cash envelopes; what do I do?

Don't panic! If you don't have enough envelopes, please make your own! Use any regular envelope, and include the participant's name and ID number, the amount enclosed, and the form of payment (check or cash). Include the envelopes in your proceeds box, and send them our way! We'll know exactly what to do.

How can I get a list of participants at my event to fill out the Cash and Check envelopes?

Downloading a list of participants is very useful as a treasurer; this list will give you all of your participants' names and ID numbers. When you sign in to your Members Area, click on "Dashboard" at the top and select your event dashboard. On the right side of the page you will see a section that shows how many people are at your event. Click on the blue "Manage Participants" button.  Here you will be able to download various reports, including a full participant roster and everything you will need to fill out cash and check envelopes.

I have leftover event supplies. What should I do with them?

Please recycle any extra paper items (envelopes, forms, etc.). Give any other items (shirts, pins, wristbands, etc.) to your event's host venue for their employees, or donate them to your local hospital, fire house, or police station.
DO NOT mail back extra items. The cost for return shipping is often more than the cost of the items returned.

What do I do with the cash and checks from the event?

There are 3 options to deal with the cash:

1. Deposit at your local Bank of America or Wells Fargo bank using the deposit slip provided in your Treasurer Packet.
2. Submit the cash online in your Member’s area through the Submit Cash feature (pay with a credit card and keep the cash as reimbursement)
3. Exchange the cash for a check and paperclip it to your Event Proceeds Report.

NEVER mail cash! Checks should be mailed to the Foundation with your proceeds.

What do I do if I lost my UPS shipping label?

Reach out to us at TreasurerHelp@StBaldricks.org and we'll be happy to send you another label.
