When corporate audits had to be conducted, some wings had difficulty maintaining their 501c status.Wing banking puts all the record keeping requirements on the Wing Finance Officer. Unit finance officers are only responsible for submitting deposits and payment requests. Most also keep a parallel ledger to help catch any errors that might occur.The request to Wing that I listed as number 1, has been a requirement for many years. There are two reasons for this. One is to make sure the fund raising activity is not a prohibited type. the other is to make sure the unit isn't trying to beg from the same companies that Wing is contacting.I doubt a PayPal donation button would be a problem in either case, but the Wing Finance Officer will need to confirm the bank account so money can be transferred.
