Thanks.

I would clarify that this statement only makes sense in the context of Scouting. Of course you can still collect funds in the Other account for things such as RS Enrichment activities, Church magazine subscriptions, and temple dinners. Yes, again, I should have clarified "in the event of surplus fu...

This is interesting, but doesn't match what is taught in the Understanding and Using the "Other" Category online lesson. That says (on slides 24-25): You described an option for transferring funds to the Ward Missionary fund, which I have not seen documented anywhere. What is the source for this po...

Are there not restrictions on the use of "Other" funds for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts? I am aware of allowable exceptions to support a single camp per year per scout, and some dedicated "Other" accounts for specific Eagle projects, but I didn't think general-purpose contributions by members or non-m...

Fund raisers

In the event you don't use all of the money from a fund raiser, you may hold it over for the next years' annual camp. Remember, these funds may be used to buy group equipment for those camps, such as tents, cook stoves, etc. The idea is that next year, you will have a fund raiser that won't raise as...

Outstanding check form

I am a new clerk and I've been looking at outstanding checks.

Thanks, for the responses. This check was originally written in May 2007. I took over finances in Jan. of this year. I did not recognize the name of the recipient and i don't think it is anyone in our ward anymore. I have voided the check at the request of the Bishop, I will call CHQ to see if that...

Actually the money doesn't go to the same place if you just donate it back to General Missionary. If you have received a request to submit your excess funds, you really do need to mail in a check and indicate it's excess WM funds. The donations to General Missionary are used to support missionaries...

Just out of curiousity - what is the computer model and configuration? Our stake and wards have Dell Optiplex GX 270s and 280s with only 256 MB of RAM. Even with the install completed from an mls.lds.org download there were long periods of apparent inactivity. Patience is definitely needed here. We...

Aha! Then we should definitely encourage all users of Bill Payer Services to donate and mail directly to CHQ. I suppose that at end of year, with statement in hand, from CHQ, such members would bring that to settlement. And CHQ would also send them a tax statement, too. Wow! The time we will save w...
