A few years ago a member donated money toward the building of a temple in our area. A temple has not been announced in our area so (for the near future, at least) there is nothing specific to put these funds toward. The ward has been holding this donation in an AMFA subcategory because they didn't know what else to do. What is the proper way to handle this donation?
The answer is found in the wiki under Donation categories in the "Temple (specific)" section:
This category no longer exists after the conversion to CUBS (in the US this occurred after 17 Oct 2010). Accumulated funds contributed to Temple (Specific) prior to the CUBS conversion should be donated to the Ward's general 'Temple Construction' category, by writing and depositing a check from the 'Temple (specific)' category if necessary. The former procedure of writing checks to Church headquarters is no longer appropriate (the check will be voided and the instructions above will be sent back to you).
If donations to this category prior to the CUBS conversion have been recategorized by the conversion as non-charitable donations, a clerk should change the donation category to be "Temple Construction" so that they will be considered to be charitable on the Official Tax Statement.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
