Cash Gift?

  • 1.  Cash Gift?

    Posted 24 days ago
    Hi All,

    We had a donor pay a third-party directly for repairs being done to a grandfather clock owned by the University. Is there anything other than receipts that we need to be able to book this as a cash gift? Seems straight forward but we've never processed a gift like this one before. Advice welcome!

    Thank you in advance!

    It's not a cash donation as you did not receive cash.  It is an in-kind donation for which a receipt without any monetary value shows up.  If you want this to be a cash gift, use the receipts to reimburse the donor and they can write you a check.
