You came to the right place, kwksmedia.


I’m here to help you record the multiple anonymous donations in QuickBooks Online (QBO).


You can create a dummy customer for the anonymous donors. If you got the donations from an event, use the event’s name as the donor name.


Once done, enter a sales receipt to record the donations.


You can follow the steps I’ve laid out below:


To create a donor:

 

  1. Select Sales on the left pane, then choose Donors.
  2. Click the New Donor button.
  3. Enter the needed information.
  4. Click Save.

To enter a sales receipt:

 

  1. Click the Plus sign icon at the top, then choose Sales Receipt.
  2. Under Choose a donor, select the dummy customer you’ve created a while ago.
  3. Enter the needed information.
  4. Click Save or Save and new.


Feel free to visit this article for more information: How to record donations received.


That should work for you. I’m confident that you can successfully enter the donations in QBO. If you've got other questions, feel free to leave a comment below. I’m always happy to help.

You can do one sales receipt for that date without a name on it at all, as a Summary of Donations that come through anonymously or from a portal.
