  • It would be helpful if you could let us know which version of CiviCRM you are using. There have been some big changes in recent versions. Commented Dec 22, 2015 at 17:37
  • I am on the newest release of 4.6

Go to Administer->CiviContribute->Financial Accounts and click on Add Financial Account. You will also need to go to Administer->CiviContribute->Financial Types and set up an In-Kind Financial type to use with your Financial Account.


If I understand you correctly you are looking to set up a new financial type and accounting code.

If so, I suggest that you read this chapter of the book: Contributions - Set up

  • I am trying to use a specific account that I created for a financial instrument. Right now there is a very limited drop down.

  • If you go to Admin -> CiviContribute -> Payment Instruments. You have a to select a financial account. I want to select a financial account others than those that are defined in the existing drop down list.
