Preferenced Gift

A preferenced gift is one in which a preference indicated by a giver expressing the giver’s wishes, desires, or advice on how or when the gift will be used but is not restricted for a specific individual. Preferenced gifts are generally recorded as temporarily restricted because the gifts are restricted for a certain purpose and the preference relates to greater specificity than the ministry’s overall purpose.
