Here are the step-by-step instructions for how to enter donations and grants in QuickBooks:
- Go to Lists > Chart of Accounts and create two revenue accounts – one for donations and one for grants.
- Go to Lists > Item List and create two service items – one for donations and one for grants using the appropriate revenue account.
- When you receive a donation or grant, go to Customers > Enter Sales Receipts using the items you created above.
- When you make the bank deposit, go to Banking > Make Deposits and select the payments you’re depositing.
