Is There a Single Software Package That Is Suitable for Both Accounting and Donation Tracking Needs?

We are a small congregation in rural Canada. We are currently using three different software programs to track our donations and do our accounting. Can anyone suggest a single software package that will make our processes seamless and allow us to enter data only once?

I recommend checking out PowerChurch at http://www.powerchurch.com/ 

I've used it for years and know of a number of other churches that have used it for a long time too.  I've been very satisfied with how it works. It's easy to use and has a lot of features.

Hi Dale, thanks for the info.  In many ways power church looks appropriate for us.  Were I see a problem is our use of tokens as a way of giving.  James at power church says in six years I am the first to ask about tokens.  Is anyone using power church and tokens?  How have you set up the accounting module and the contributions module to handle tokens?

I'm somewhat familiar with the Canadian money, but not the "token". What are these tokens?

Tokens are basically an inhouse currency.  A member can purchase say $100.00 in tokens.  This $100.00 will then be included on their charitable tax reciept at year end.  The member is then free to distribute them in the offering of their choice as well as their child's Sunday school class.  The deacons like them because they are easier to count then coins and bills, and they can be reused.
