Re: why does my non-profit donation show up as a negative number?

Good day, NonProfitChurch.

 

May I know how did you record the donation in QuickBooks Desktop?

 

It could be that you've entered a bank deposit using the Accounts receivable. That's why it's showing as a negative amount in QuickBooks.

 

If that's the case, delete the bank deposit and record the amount using sales receipts or invoices. Here's how:

  1. Go to Customer and Enter Sales Receipts.
  2. Select the customer's name.
  3. Enter the product or service in the Item drop down and enter the amount, 
  4. Once you're done, click on Save & Close.

For further guidance, you can check out the Help section in QuickBooks by following these steps:

  1. Go to Help.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Type in "donation" in the search field and press the Enter key.
  4. Then, check all available links for more information about recording donations.

Please let me know how it goes by leaving a comment below. I'm here to help you further.
