Non-Profit Enterprise Desktop Version - Splitting Items into Donation and Value Received

I work for a non-profit where some departments "sell" goods/services.  I'd like to be able to set up these to properly allocate a portion to "Donations" and a portion to "Program Services".  How can I do this without having to set up two separate items for 75-100 different items?

Non-Profit Enterprise Desktop Version - Splitting Items into Donation and Value Received

Hi Julie.

 

Thank you for reaching out to us here on the Community page. I can share with you some information about managing items on QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Splitting an item into two or more types is currently unavailable. At this time, you can track your donation and value received as a separate transaction. To record a donation, you can either create a deposit or sales receipt. While a bill entry for the value received.

 

On the other hand, if you need to split your items, you may look for a supported third-party application through the apps store. Here's the link: Apps for QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Here's an article you can read more about managing items in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

You can also open the topics from our help articles for more tips and resources while working with QuickBooks in the future.

Thank you Angelyn,

I'm sure I'm not the only person working for a Non-Profit who would find this most helpful.  Would i be possible for you to pass this request on to the development team?  This is a very basic and fundamental aspect of Non-Profit accounting.

Thanks for getting back to us, @JulieK99.

 

I can see the convenience of having an option to split an item into two or more types. This is a great product suggestion that our intuit developers would love to know.

 

While this option is not yet available, you can send your request to our product developers. They're constantly looking for great ideas from users, like yourself, when deciding how to enhance QuickBooks.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Open your QBDT, then go to the Help menu.
  2. Tap on Send Feedback Online, then Product Suggestion.
  3. Choose a feedback type and product area on the QuickBooks Feedback window.
  4. Enter your suggestion or feedback, name, and email address (optional), then click on the Send Feedback button.

 

You can also visit our Firm of the Future site. This is where we share recent happenings and future developments, such as updates to newly added features.

 

If you have any other concerns, feedback, or questions, don't hesitate and come back to the Community. I'm always here to help you. Have a great day.
