Contribution in Kind
In each of the following scenarios, an organization receives a contribution in-kind. Prepare journal entries, as necessary, to give them accounting recognition. For each, tell why you made an entry or why you did not. 1)A local not-for-profit art museum
receives advertising for its yearly benefit from radio station WLOU. The airtime would have cost the museum $1,000. 2)Volunteers for â€˜â€˜Breakfast on Bikes,â€™â€™ a voluntary health and welfare organization, deliver hot meals to the elderly three times a week. Each
of the ten volunteers works about six hours per week. All of the volunteers have permanent jobs with pay averaging $36.10 an hour. 3)Lynn Simms, a local CPA, maintains the books and records of her church. Although her normal billing rate is $120 per hour,
she accepts no payment from the church. She works on church matters approximately four hours a week. 4)A construction company allows a not-for-profit community association to use its bulldozer at no cost to clear land for a new baseball park. If the association
had to rent the bulldozer it would have incurred costs of $2,400.
