  4. Enter the grant information:
    • Grant Date
    • Description

    • Conditional checking this box indicates that the recipient must do something in order to receive the next installment. When the books are closed at the end of the year; installments that are marked as Conditional (Yes) will have the expense and the payable reversed at year end. The reversal is made in a separate fund, so your fund statements aren't changing throughout the year. This fund can be set in System Data -> Grant Options -> Conditional Payment Fund.
    • Amount
    • Expense Account - default pulled from your chart of accounts.
    • Revenue Account - default pulled from your chart of accounts.

    • Contributions - Internal
