Impact statement
This project will save us $5,409 , allowing us to focus on other operations, administrative and fundraising projects & events.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Setup of selected accounting software (e.g. Aplos, Araize)
  • Training and guidelines on how to manage system and generate basic reports
Additional Details

Our organization is looking for a volunteer to write a bookkeeping policy and procedure manual. We do not need assistance with accounting software setup. Thanks!

What We Have In Place
  • We do have a few examples or drafts of policy/procedure manuals but would need someone to cater to our organization. Depending on the drafts, it may be easier to start from scratch if a volunteer has a better process.
How This Will Help

This will help outline and implement a streamlined process for everyday bookkeeping and create structure for future employees.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.

We work to free the wrongfully convicted, educate the public, and change policy to prevent future wrongful convictions.
