Then, in the STUDENT NAME box, type EACH VOLUNTEER’S NAME and HOW MUCH of the donation should be donated for each person, separated by a comma. For example:

Here's step-by-step instructions...
To Donate by Paper Check
An E-CHECK donation is STRONGLY encouraged over a paper check for payments because it saves time of our volunteers to open, record, and deposit hundreds of checks. The E-CHECK payment via Intuit is our preferred method of payment (see instructions above), because it's super fast for you and for us, accurate, safer than paper because we never see your bank information (nor does anyone else handling your mail), and it only costs us $.50/transaction. If for some reason it is not possible to make a donation with the E-CHECK payment method, please mail us a check following the instructions below.
All checks should be made payable to SANTA CLARA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL. In the check MEMO, Please only PRINT: GUATEMALA MISSION, then write the volunteer's name on an included post-it. No personal names on the check OR in the CHECK MEMO, please, only on an attachment or post-it.
If you are making a payment for multiple team members with one check payment (i.e. for a group from a church), please type EACH VOLUNTEER’S NAME and HOW MUCH of the check should be donated for each person ON A SEPARATE PIECE OF PAPER OR POST-IT. For example:
John Smith - $800
Sally Jones - $150
Joe Schmoe - $650
