Accounting Systems Review
Impact statement
This project will save us $8,564 , allowing us to focus on the mission and fieldwork.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Analysis of accounting needs and assessment of Organization’s current accounting practices
  • Recommendations for process improvements for enhanced reporting
  • Recommendations on appropriate bookkeeping system such as a spreadsheet or Quickbooks and related costs (if necessary)
  • Note: This does not include accounting systems set up or implementation
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Quickbooks that we use, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have organization files both hard/soft copy, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We want to make sure we are using Quickbooks most effectively and see what strategies and systems for organization out there work best.

Project Plan

Prep: Distribution of Prep Materials
  • Proficiency with spreadsheet and/or software accounting
  • Understanding of any local regulations or laws that would affect Organization's accounting needs

  • Volunteer Manager conveys any budget and capacity considerations that might apply to ongoing bookkeeping management
  • Note:: If necessary, Volunteer Manager should have Volunteer sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) prior to sharing and discussing Organization’s financial information.
