Where would I enter a check for a donation written to a charitable organization?

Hello, @lmcginnis.

 

You can enter a check or an expense transaction for the donation you made to a charitable organization. Before recording the transactions, you have to create an account for charitable contributions.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon, then select Chart of Accounts under Your Company.
  2. Tap on New beside Run Report.
  3. In the Account dialog, select Expenses from the Account Type drop-down list.
  4. Pick Charitable Contributions from the Detail Type drop-down.
  5. Enter a Name for the account (for example, Charitable Contributions).
  6. Select Save and Close to record it.

To enter a check or an expense transaction:

 

  1. Choose either Check or Expense under Vendors from the Plus (+) icon.
  2. Fill in the necessary information, then go to the Category details section.
  3. Select the account created under the Category column, enter the amount of the donation.
  4. Hit the Save button to record the transaction.
