Clerks should understand the following about the “Other” category:
Funds in the “Other” category must be designated for a future purpose and then used for the stated purpose. The “Other” category is divided into subcategories, and the title of the subcategory should indicate the intended purpose. Subcategories in “Other” should be limited to those approved by the bishopric or stake presidency.
If members designate money for the “Other” category and the purpose is not stated or does not fit within one of the approved subcategories, a bishopric member should contact the member and either return the money or have the member change the donation to another category.
For example, you may create a subcategory named “Other—Church Magazines” to use during a Church magazine campaign. When you receive money for a magazine subscription:
- Deposit the money into the Other—Church Magazines subcategory.
- And prepare a single check for the total of all subscriptions, recording the expense to the Other—Church Magazines subcategory.

Once the idea has been discussed on the forum, an administrator will move the suggestion to this page -- regular users can no longer make changes to this page directly
How do you do this "transfer" function you speak of....
Is that what you mean by a "transfer"? If not, would there have been some easier way to do this without callling HQ and going over 30+ categories (that's not what I did but I am guessing it is what you are calling a "transfer"...please correct me if I am mistaken and advise on proper transfer procedures so I can train the fellow who will be replacing me in the next few months).
