Contributions at end of year
Not sure how to get started, the ladies before me held all envelopes til the end of the year and totaled them for each member. The would stay hours. Of course, I was gonna build a spreadsheet and total every Sunday for each member. What do you suggest I do? Thanks so much for your site.
I've been there and I know exactly what you're going through, which is why I created Shepherdbase (church membership database). Shepherdbase tracks:
- Church member's information
- Church member's contributions that will automate Annual Contribution letters
- Filter church member's information (birthday, anniversary, groups, etc.)
- Church member attendance and much more
Shepherdbase is a very simple but powerful database that just happens to be on sale for $29.99 from now through January 1, 2012. Here is the link below to purchase Shepherdbase.Shepherdbase
If you can't purchase Shepherdbase you could visit FreeChurchAccounting.com
and sign up for the free newsletter and receive a free "Contributions" excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet will not automate the annual contribution letters like the database but will keep a running total for each member per year.
I hope you take advantage one of these because I know you will be glad you did, I saved a lot of my precious time and I hope you do also!
Merry Christmas and May God Richly Bless You!
