Restricted Gift Guidance from the UA Foundation
This past spring the UA Foundation created a new “soft ledger” option as a way to accept restricted gifts into general support funds at the Foundation. This new method allowed departments to track the spending of such restricted gifts while the UA Foundation and our auditors could monitor the tracking on a password-protected shared drive. This option was created as a workaround for some previous issues that arose when using the MAU’s Restricted Donation Holding accounts. These “RDH” accounts were created years ago specifically to track such restricted gifts.
