Accounting & Finance

Propel Nonprofits is currently considering applicants for our new accounting and finance program. This new delivery model offers an holistic model for delivering nonprofit accounting services, going beyond accounting to make sure your nonprofit has the financial management resources it needs to be sustainable.

Interest is this new model has been significant.  As a result, Propel Nonprofits is currently accepting applications for services to begin in late summer of 2018.

What does this mean for your nonprofit?

In addition to solid bookkeeping, accounting, and financial reporting, you can expect to receive education and technical assistance from other Propel Nonprofits staff to educate your nonprofit’s staff and board in financial management, use of capital, board development, and strategy.

Our services provide nonprofit leaders, board treasurers, and board members with the management information required to make good decisions and satisfy the requirements of funders and government regulators – along with peace of mind knowing that your financial information is up-to-date and accurate.
