I have a budget expense account called "Wednesday Meal". We pay to have a Wednesday meal from this account. We receive donations at the meal to offset the expenses of the meal. How and where do I enter the donation income to properly show how much real time expenses I have in "Wednesday Meal"?
As a novice, I do not think this is what I am talking about so I will explain. In my church budget for the year I have an expense item entitled: "Wednesday Night Meal" with a set yearly budget. People attend on Wednesday and donate to the meal expense. I then need to take the donations and show somehow that besides using budget money that week on the meal I also have donations to offset the expense so I won't go over my yearly budget. I don't know if this is the best way to explain or not. As a novice, I need very simple directions. Sorry!
