Visa gift card donation

  • 1.  Visa gift card donation

    Posted 11 days ago
    Good morning,
    We received a Visa gift card as a donation. Would this be recorded as a general gift in kind for the card or would I include the description of what we purchased with the gift card?
    Thank you,
    Kelly

    You were not given what was purchased with the gift card.  You were only given the card.  And, as the card itself is not considered a negotiable currency it is typically recorded as a gift-in-kind.
