Multiple Donation Slips, One Check

Postby ckmcdonald » Mon Mar 07, 2011 7:39 am

Yesterday, for the first time in my Finance Clerk career, we received a donation envelope containing 3 separate donation slips (for 3 different adults in the same family) but with just one check made out for the sum of all three donations.

I thought I remember reading a post in the forum here not long ago that MLS can accept multi-donor - single check donations.

Can MLS accept such a donation? If so, how would it be properly entered?

On the bottom of the left side under where you enter the amounts from the donation slip there is a button 'New slip' clicking on that will let you enter the additional donation information and then you can enter one check to go against the multiple slips.
