Sara, Camps A Rising is Accountable To You
On Thursday Camps A Rising purchased $192.00 worth of tools requested by the leadership of the Camps Stage 10 Action Project. On Friday a Go Fund Me campaign was designed to request donations to fund the tools purchased. That same afternoon Sara donated $25.00 through that fundraising effort.
Saturday morning found Go Fund Me informing Camps A Rising it was preparing to send $23.97 directly to our checking account. We were told to expect it within two to five business days. On Monday bank records indicated the money had been deposited. Now confirmed, the deposit was entered into our checking account ledger, the “Camp Log”.
Sara is now able to begin tracking her donation and how it was used. When she visits www.campsarising.org Sara will find our on-line Camp Log. The Camp Logs are always available and updated in real time. Sara can locate her transaction using the approximate date she sent her donation and examining the ledger. She confirms her donation was received when she recognizes the initials of her name.
The line accounting for her transaction indicates the date of deposit as well as the amount of $23.97. Additionally, a column identified as, “Purpose This Money Was Offered” shows her donation was offered for a particular purpose.
Around the middle of next month Camps A Rising receives a credit card statement. The statement will be posted on-line and each purchase will be entered into the Camp Log. The credit card service used by Camps A Rising provides a four digit code for each and every transaction. Toward the end of the month Camps A Rising will pay that credit card bill. When processing the statement Camps A Risings staff will determine what Sara’s donation actually was used for. Using that four digit transaction code staff enters a code for each purchase Sara’s money was used for. Each transaction code is placed next to her initials.
The column, “Money Was Used to Fund This Action Project” is used by staff to refine the accounting of Sara’s money. Sara now knows which of our Action Projects benefited from her donation. Staff also enter information into the column, “Funds Spent Were Charged to The Following Categories”. The information held within these two columns is sent to the pie charts Sara can view to gain an overall picture of Camps A Risings income and expenditures.
Should Sara ever want to view the specific sales receipt for purchases made in her name, Camps A Rising is able to provide them to her.
