I have some questions I want to ask about designated funds. I don't see a forum under which the subject would fit, so I will post it here. Perhaps whoever makes those decisions would consider adding a forum for "Church Administration." I would like to hear how some of the churches handle designated funds. Do you allow people to give designated offerings? If so, do you include those designated gifts on their giving record so they can be claimed as tax deductions? When someone gives a designated gift for an item that is already in your budget, which money do you spend first? Do you have a time limit on spending designated funds? I have another administrative question to ask, but I will start another thread for it. Thanks!
