Question: The Watson Foundation, a private not-for-

The Watson Foundation, a private not-for-profit entity, starts 2020 with cash of $100,000, contributions receivable (net) of $200,000, investments of $300,000, and land, buildings, and equipment (net) of $200,000. Net assets without donor restrictions were reported as $400,000, the same figure as the net assets with donor restrictions. Of the restricted net assets, $300,000 was purpose restricted whereas the other $100,000 had to be held permanently, although the subsequently earned income is without restriction. Fifty percent of the purpose restricted net assets had to be used to help pay for a new building. The remainder was restricted to the payment of officer salaries. Donors made no stipulations about the eventual reporting of buildings and other long-lived assets when acquired. Watson has one program service (health care) and two supporting services (fundraising and administrative).
During the current year, Watson Foundation has the following transactions.
(1) Computed interest of $20,000 on the unrestricted contribution receivable.
(2) Received cash of $100,000 from the contributions receivable and wrote off another $4,000 as uncollectible.
(3) Received unrestricted cash donations of $180,000.
(4) Received $23,000 in cash that must be spent for a particular type of office machine within the next year or the money must be returned.

(6) Spent the $23,000 in (4) for the appropriate office machine.
(7) Received a cash gift of $12,000 that Watson must convey to another specified charity. However, Watson has the right to give this money to a different organization if officials so choose.
(8) Bought a building for $500,000 by signing a long-term note for $450,000 and using restricted funds for the remainder.
