Claim Forms

I'm going through the claim forms and mail that Tarsier Girl picked up while I was away. She has kindly gone through all the donations and memberships as usual, but I am looking now at some of the reimbursement forms. I've gone through three, and only one was filled out properly. One form had all the statistics - but no receipts at all. The other had the receipts, but only the number of cats sterilised for that month filled out. We do need receipts or we cannot reimburse anything - we are a charity and need to be accountable. On the other hand, we're trying to collect these forms to get a better idea of peoples' colonies and we need the statistics. Telling us how many cats were sterilised in a colony, and not the size of the colony gives us no idea of what is happening in your area. If you do have any other caregivers you know who are filling out the forms, please let them know.

Maybe a CWS Claim Form Workshop is needed. =)

Suggestion: Could some verbiage on purpose of the form, and instructions on filling the form and submission be added? Also, how about a little checkbox for people to indicate if they're claiming, then you don't have to follow-up and confirm it's not a case of missing receipts?
