The Access ACS Plain Paper Statement Extract is used to upload your temporary contribution records to Access ACS. Once this extract has been uploaded and sent, you can print the Plain Paper Statement report in Access ACS.

The extract creates a detailed file of gifts for each contributor that is included when you upload to Access ACS. This statement file contains prepayments made in previous years and is always based on a calendar year. It features a return address field, and the option to upload pledge information and fund summary. An unlimited number of funds can be selected when uploading selected funds. A fund summary lists the Total Gifts, Total Pledge, Prepayments made in previous years, and the Pledge Balance by fund. It will not include funds with zero amounts.

Tip

The Access ACS Plain Paper Statement Extract meets the IRS requirements for reporting charitable gifts. It provides a detailed list of contributions, and acknowledges the IRS requirements for reporting non-cash gifts, items-of-value gifts, and contributions totaling $250.00 or more in one day.
