Should all types of giving be recorded on the end of year contribution statement.

by Shelia Seals-Collins

My church accepts Tithes and Offering 3 different ways. In person giving during service, through Givelify an online giving site, and through cash app.

My question is should all types of giving be recorded on 1 end of year contribution statement or is it ok to issue a contribution statement for the contributions given at the church then using the statement generated through Givelify?

Most online giving apps generate an instant receipt AND as you stated...you can pull an annual one at year end, so IF your governing body is ok with donors getting multiple receipts...you can definitely do it that way =)

Most of my bookkeeping clients wants their donors to get one receipt, so we record all online and offline in one donation tracking software =(

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 =)
