Our Church uses Quicken to manage the business of the church, including
keeping records of members donations. Is there any addition or plugin
that makes this easier. Or if there is any other advise or tutorial that
helps with this task.

Thanks in advance!

To give a meaningful answer, I need a little more info ---
What version of Quicken are you using?
Is it a H & B version?
Are you talking about weekly donations or payments against pledges?

Thanks Jim!

We get regular offering and Building Fund offering. Then we need to make
of note of each member giving. There are pledges made, but not very often.

I used the Quicken Deluxe for the basic church finances until we started a building program. Our building program was done on the basis of pledges made and to be paid over a 4 year period. With that I upgraded to the Home & Business version - to run the church finances more like a business with receivables (pledges) and a variety of other reasons. It was a good move. Once the building program is complete, I will be back to using Quicken Basic/Deluxe only.

We do not track weekly donations by individuals. If that were to happen, I would not use Quicken (any version). I would use a Excel for tracking purposes as a supplement to Quicken. In my opinion it would be a whole lot easer.

I've been using the software packages from this company for several years. I have both their Treasurer and Contribution programs. These are specifically designed for church recordkeeping.

You can download trial versions and try them out. We were using Excel
spreadsheets before we switched. As Financial Secretary, I use these packages
since it allows us to track the various special funds and the budget. Our Treasurer does keep the bank accounts
in Quicken though and we reconcile separately as a cross check.
