Church Contribution Software
CCIS church contribution software is designed to be easy to learn and use. The following is an overview of the steps to get started.
Step 1: Set up households (families) for your members in your church contribution software. For example, if David & Mary Jones are members of the church and have three children, you should setup the The David & Mary Jones Family. Enter the address, telephone and status of this family.
Step 2: Enter members for the households. Following the example above, you would setup David, Mary and each child as a member. For each member of the family in our church contribution software, you can enter their phone, birth date and status. You can also enter their envelope number if they have been assigned an offering envelope number. Member setup provides the information to print labels specific to the member.
Step 3: Setup your church's bank information, bank account information, funds, address, and headers and footers for the contribution letters. If you choose to export your deposits from CCIS church contribution software into QuickBooks, this is the step where you enter the QB revenue account name for each fund.
Step 4: Optionally in our church software package, setup Groups and assign members and households to groups. This is a handy feature that will allow you to print mailing labels for a selected group (i.e. a Sunday School class, the choir, a committee, etc...). The same Households and/or members can be assigned to multiple groups.
After setup is complete, you are ready to enter contributions and make deposits.
To enter a church contribution software batches, enter the date (or use the default date), the member (from drop down list or envelope number), the type of payment (from the drop down list: check, cash, credit card, direct deposit), and check number. Then, assign the contribution to the appropriate fund(s) (from the drop down list). If the contribution needs to be split between more than one fund, CCIS church contribution software makes it a snap. Just enter the amount that needs to be applied to each fund.
To group several contributions into one deposit, just enter the date of the deposit and check mark the contributions that belong to that deposit. You can then print a Deposit Summary Report, which should match the amount of the actual deposit. This is a good internal control for churches.
In addition to annual contribution letters and receipts, CCIS offers a number of useful reports. You can preview or print Fund Summary reports, Deposit Summary Reports, membership lists/labels, and household lists/labels and Envelope Lists.
