Do we give an end of the year statement to everyone or just the people who gave over a certain limit? For example what if someone gives $40 for the whole year do we send them an end of the year statement like someone who gave $4,000?
That is up to your church’s policy. In my church, we have index cards in with our contribution envelopes; in which, members can check that they do need a contribution receipt this year and instructions to just drop the card in the offering container.
You still need to track and record everyone’s donations; however, the person who gave $40 may not need or want a contribution receipt.
Some send them out to all their donors...just to thank them for their support no matter how much it was.
Need training on how to use QBO or Aplos effectively for a church or better yet ...need an expert in either of those accounting software to do your monthly bookkeeping and/or payroll? See more on our accounting services!
