We need assistance setting up accounting processes to ensure our organization grows responsibly. We are experiencing a sharp increase in grant funding and donations, and our expenses are also soaring. As the volunteer bookkeeper, I track all income and expenditures in Quickbooks, while our program coordinator logs gifts into a CRM platform, Little Green Light, for the purposes of managing and acknowledging donors. As we build our budget for 2020, we need professional assistance.
El Refugio is a small organization providing services to immigrants detention center in rural Georgia and their loved ones. We visit detained immigrants, provide free lodging and meals to friends and family members; and we have just launched a new program helping our friends who are released from detention get home to their families and sponsors. We had a budget of just $99,000 in 2018, and this year we have a budget of $240,000, with a goal of $450,000 next year to meet increased needs.
We are a ministry of hospitality and visitation serving immigrants at Stewart Detention Center and their loved ones.
