Change Cash Donation


Post by bgant »

Our youth had a fund rasing activity in which many members submitted cash and did not fill out a tithing slip and some also gave checks and cash with a slip. We put the ones with cash with no slip all under "unknown" donor. One of the members submitted two slips in the envelope with one with no money and a second slip with a check. We couldn't get ahold of him so we held onto the slip until the next week. We thought that he might have been confused. Later, when he contacted us, he said that he had given the cash to one of the youth leaders which was turned in with all the other cash donations. How do I split this amount out from the unknown donor's submittal and put into this members?

The donation in the donation batch has to be edited and a new donation added. Go to View/Edit Donations and find the donation batch and open it. Reduce the unknown donor amount by the amount to be appied for the donor with the donation slip. Then add the donation for the donor with the donation slip. The donation batch amount will still be the same but the unknown donor amount will be adjusted and a new donor will be added to the batch. Print the adjusted donation batch and replace the original donation batch printout. Then do a send/recieve.
