What is the most important 2017 New Year’s resolution for your Nonprofit?

A quick Google search of 2017 resolutions for nonprofit organization yields some inspiring and creative goals for the coming year including: more personal responses to donor, increased visibility in the community, professional development, creative breaks, tell a great story, develop more multi-channel fundraising campaigns, uncover creative ways to attract and retain volunteers, and more – literally thousands of novel ideas.

But there was one glaring omission

But there was one glaring omission – one resolution that many, many nonprofits should have on their 2017 list. What wasn’t mentioned in the dozens of articles and thousands of blog posts?

Addressing the accounting needs of the organization.

We get it. Typically, accounting is pretty much out of sight, out of mind. Until you need a report. Or until you get a call from a vendor saying they haven’t received a payment but you’re pretty sure that a check was issued last week. Accounting remains out of sight and out of mind until a few days before the Board Meeting when you’re scrambling to put together the necessary reports.

Why not make 2017 the year you deal with improving your accounting processes once and for all?

Outsource your nonprofit accounting today and never worry about incomplete or late reports ever again. Outsource your nonprofit accounting and maintain a lean administration staff – no more candidate searches only to be frustrated by the lack of qualified prospects, or by the salary requirements of qualified candidates. Outsource your nonprofit accounting and forget about sinking a big chunk of money into accounting software, the server, hardware and network for the software, and the software training necessary to get your team proficient on the software.
