Fund Accounting (Churches and Ministries)

Anedot allows you to set-up different funds for your organization. The set-up for fund accounting depends on if you have one bank account or multiple bank accounts for your different funds.

For example, some churches have one bank account for their missions and building funds, while others have more than one. 

Here are instructions for both:

 

One Bank Account

Funds - One Bank Account

 

1. Click Campaigns and click "Edit" on the campaign you want to collection contributions

2. Edit your form design to your desired look. 

3. Click the "Finance" tab and click "Items"

4. Click the + button to create an Item Group

4. Click the + Add Item button to add the different funds you want like a Missions or Building Fund.

5. Click Save

NOTE: You will not see the items on the campaign preview page and will need to open up the giving page to see them listed. 

EXPORT: When you export your contributions using the "Transactions" tab, the different funds contribution will be listed in a column so you know how much money was given to each fund.
