application to maintain donors' account
Somebody I know in a small non-profit organization has asked me if can
help them setup an small system which will do basic accounting. All they
require is that:
1. it maintain a database of donors
2. it maintain what those donors donated
3. and be able to produce yearly concise report who donated what and
also print out a receipt at the end of an year for tax purposes on the
total amount donated by each donor.
I am not familiar with accounting stuff so I thought of throwing these
requirements at some lists for suggestions. Some things that come to my
mind are: make a small Web application using mysql to enter/edit donor's
information. Or use gnucash in some way. Or use openoffice.org with main
merge in some way to talk to an mysql database or to a OOo spread sheet.
But I guess better knowledgeable people in this field will be able to
direct me properly.
