Online Giving - Yearly Reporting

By Kelly Gutowski

It's tax time and as a donor, you will want to report your contributions for your online giving for churches or nonprofits. According to the IRS, you should maintain a report of all monetary gifts regardless of the amount. Additionally, you can only deduct donations if they are itemized and you a written record detailing the organization, amount, and date of donation is needed. We certainly are not acting as your personal accountant, but we encourage you to visit the IRS website for details. https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc506.html

To assist you with your reporting, Continue to Give implemented a Yearly Summary report just in time for tax season. The Yearly Summary displays the necessary detail for reporting as well as the tax identification number of the organization. This makes summarizing your donations for online giving for churches and nonprofits easy. We do not guarantee that all your giving is tax deductible. If you have given to a fundraising website and you are not sure, please ask the fundraiser, or your tax accountant.

To display and print the report:

  1. Login into your Continue to Give account.
  2. Select Reporting Tools in the left hand pane. Report tabs will display across the top of the page.
  3. Select the Yearly Summary tab.
  4. Set the Year for reporting.
  5. Select Show Summary to display on screen. (Note that you must display before printing.)
  6. After reviewing, select Click to Print to download your hardcopy.

On the sample report below, you will note a Total Giving amount that represents the sum contributed to all organizations throughout the calendar year. The report will then display transaction detail grouped by individual organization.
