4. Members of an NFPO donated their time to construct a garage for the NFPO’s automobile. The NFPO would have paid $8,000 for the labor, had it not been donated. The garage will last 20 years. The NFPO should report the contributed labor as an asset and as contribution revenue.
5. Cash donated specifically for constructing a building that will have an estimated life of 40 years should be reported as temporarily restricted.
