My church's financial balance sheet has monies set aside as part of designated gifts that were collected over the years.
The church does not have any interest in pursuing some of the projects that the gifts were originally targeted for.
Some of the donors no longer attend our church, may have moved away, or simply passed away.
We would like to use these the monies for other purposes.
What is the easiest accounting solution?
Currently they are carried as liabilities on our balance sheet with the money just sitting in a cash account.

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 =)
