If you are using QB or QBO....set up a new "Other Revenue" account and title it "restricted donations" or anything you want.

It will appear at the bottom of your Statement of Activity AFTER the NET OPERATING REVENUE.

You can also set up "Other Expenditure" for any expenses applied against it.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
