The announcement letter from the First Presidency invites interested Church members to make a small, one-time contribution to the restoration project by specifying “Priesthood Restoration Site” on the Tithing and Other Offerings slip that is available from bishops and branch presidents.
But there are no more details than that regarding procedures to be followed by financial clerks in accounting for such funds. I'm guessing that some faithful members who are eager to help will be making donations as early as this Sunday. How should we handle such donations?
Until we get further instructions, we could receive such donations into a new subcategory of Other:Authorized Member Financed Activities called "Priesthood Restoration Site". As with all AMFA donations, such a donation would not be treated as a charitable donation on the year-end tax statement. At some point I'm sure we'll be told just what to do with the accumulated funds, and then we could always submit the funds or recategorize any such donations as instructed.
Does anyone know any more details on the financial procedures for these donations?
