Accounting for Contributions

Handling donor designated or restricted contributions require a large attention to detail by the church treasurer or bookkeeper. A donor restriction is a contribution where the donor has specified where or how the money is to be used. PowerChurch Plus can help you keep track of these balances and show how and when the money was used. The document linked below explains what donor restrictions are, the proper accounting treatments for them, and the specific features in PowerChurch Plus that help you with this detailed task.
