Nonprofit Accounting Guidance for Contributions: FASB ASU 2018-08


Understand the differences between contributions and exchange transactions.

Many accounting and finance professionals have noted difficulty in characterizing grants and similar contracts with resource providers as either exchange transactions or contributions and in determining whether a contribution is conditional. This topic will improve your understanding of accounting and reporting for grants and contributions by enabling you to distinguish between exchange and contribution elements within a transaction. This material will help you be able to clearly determine if a promise to give is conditional through example application.
