Accounting Systems Set Up

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
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Quickbooks Online account linked to our bank account, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have A Keela account and Excel spread sheets on donor an budget, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,409 , allowing us to put that amount in books on diversity, directly to Southern Arizona public school classrooms.

Getting a handle on accounting principles will go along way to understand how to navigate Quickbooks Online and know the correct way to track expenses,donor and in-kind assets
