Sound nonprofit financial management is one of the biggest keys to success for any nonprofit organization. Your needs will vary considerably based on the size of your organization, scope of your mission and sources of income.
That said, two things never change: Whether you have one employee or 1,000, your organization will need accurate bookkeeping and committed, credible oversight. With those in place, you’ll be in a better position to maintain your 501c(3) status, raise and manage necessary funds, and protect the resources needed to deliver on your mission.
This section is designed to guide you through an overview of key accounting indicators and functions as they relate to nonprofits. We also outline important regulatory, governance and tax considerations. Even if numbers aren’t your thing, the topics discussed here should give you a good sense of the areas to explore with your bookkeeper, accountant and board.
