Re: Handling funds for multi-stake events

In our coordinating council we generally do things one of two ways: 1) For areas that will likely have ongoing expenses throughout the year (regional YSA activities, or expenses related to Family History Centers), one stake takes financial responsibility for that area, and sends an invoice to the ot...

Handling funds for multi-stake events

I'm curious how some of you who are stake clerks handle things when your stake is handling funding for a regional event. Do you spend funds out of budget categories, or set up an "Other" account? How do you track what other stakes need to pay and have paid?

Thanks,

Paying a tip - ?

Our stake is chartering a bus for a temple trip. Apparently it is customary to tip the driver. The bus company informed the person who made the arrangements that the tip would need to be provided in cash. I don't know the amount of the tip yet, but after a quick Google search it sounds like it would...

Thank you. I had looked at the wiki a little bit but obviously didn't search thoroughly enough.

Donations toward a temple that doesn't exist

A few years ago a member donated money toward the building of a temple in our area. A temple has not been announced in our area so (for the near future, at least) there is nothing specific to put these funds toward. The ward has been holding this donation in an AMFA subcategory because they didn't k...

Unable to complete audit online

I am a very new stake clerk. I was contacted by one of our auditors with a problem. He audited a ward, but due to a technical issue, the ward's computer is unable to go online to access the audit site. He filled out an audit form by hand, and is now wondering what to do. He proposed the following op...

Unable to resolve donation discrepancy

During tithing settlement, a member of our ward stated that several donations did not appear on his donation summary. He brought in the yellow copies of his donation slips and we verified that we do not have record of these donations in MLS. This member was in our ward throughout 2011, so did not pa...

Received unusual donation slips with tithing envelopes

Our ward just got a new box of tithing envelopes in. We noticed on Sunday that the donation slips included in this box are different. The line under the donor's name asks for their record number instead of their address. Some of the donation categories (Humanitarian, Perpetual Education, etc.) are a...

We were having the same problem in our ward for rent assistance, and here's what we do. We give the Fast Offering recipient a document listing the Payee, check number, and amount, and says something like "I acknowledge receipt of this check to be used for paying rent on (address/apartment number)." ...

Asst. clerk receiving messages sent to Bishoprics

I'm not sure this is the correct forum to post this, please feel free to point out if there one that is better suited to this issue. I am the Assistant clerk for finances in our ward. Periodically I receive emails sent through the lds.org messaging system that are clearly intended for the Bishopric....
