Though not required, many churches use a system of pledges. These are commitments made by contributors to give a certain amount over a certain time period in specific increments (weekly, monthly, annually, etc.).
To add a pledge, do the following:
- Click on Records, then Pledges, and then Add.
- Select the Contributor, then the Fund.
- Enter the amount, then the frequency for the pledge.
- Enter the date range the pledge runs, and Shepherd’s Staff automatically calculates the total of the pledge for you.
