How do you track donations in QuickBooks?

Churches might avoid QuickBooks because they think they will need a separate system to track donations. Most church accounting programs have a module for accounting and a separate module for keeping the giving records. For years, the rumor was that you could track giving records in QuickBooks…and that rumor is true! I played around in QuickBooks and changed some settings, and it worked pretty slick. For very large churches, they may need a more robust system like Fellowship One or Church Community Builder, but for the majority of churches, that’s not necessary. They don’t need a system to track and communicate with members. They just need something that will give them a statement for each donor.

Below is my quick and fairly successful attempt at tracking donations in QuickBooks:
