Does goodbricks work with general ledger?
Goodbricks allows you to export a CSV file that should be importable by your general ledger. We also provide bank deposit reporting that includes the full deposit amount as well as the break out by fund. We’d advise against keeping every individual donation in your general ledger. Instead, we’d recommend using a journaled entry strategy where individual gift details are stored in Goodbricks and only the deposits totals and fund details are entered into your general ledger.
