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
Additional Details


What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a good understanding of what we need, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a great Fiscal Team, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,564 , allowing us to invest those funds into building capacity.

Saving time! Funders are shortening deadlines, our services are expanding and our Fiscal team is at capacity. We need an all inclusive accounting system that can reduce the lift of day to day procedures and reporting. We don't have the bandwidth to be able to research the appropriate accounting system for us, and would like to be able to take what is found here to approach local foundations to fund implementation costs.

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
Milestone 1: Analysis & Recommendations
  • Volunteer Manager communicates current accounting needs and practices to Professional
  • Volunteer Manager provides a chart of accounts or operating budget, and any financial statements currently being generated (e.g. statement of financial position, statement of activities, or statement of cash flows), outlining current operational constraints with existing system
  • 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.
