Accounting & Finance

To make informed decisions and achieve mission impact, nonprofit organizations don’t just need financial information. They need insight into their organizations’ unique challenges and opportunities. But too often, critical tools like financial reports or accounting software are barriers to insight – confusing or excluding stakeholders, undermining confidence and trust, and preventing organizations from successfully planning for the future. For many leaders and organizations, taking ownership of those tools can be an “A-ha!” moment.

Propel Nonprofits provides consulting and coaching designed to equip your organization with financial tools and resources that provide insight and ultimately empower nonprofit boards and staff to make decisions with confidence.

Free Nonprofit Accounting Helpline

We know a lot of nonprofit accounting is learning by doing, and often talking to an expert is more helpful than finding the perfect Google search result. Whether you’re struggling to make changes to your chart of accounts, are new to QuickBooks Online and have questions, want a better way of presenting your finances to the board, or have some other accounting challenge, give us a call at 612-249-6640.

Financial Insights Coaching

One of our accounting specialists will work closely with the person managing your finances over 12 months (a full fiscal cycle) to review your accounting reports, answer questions, and help ensure your financial records are accurate. The goal: make sure your financial tools effectively tell your organization’s story and build skills, efficiencies, and confidence within your organization.

QuickBooks Online Set-Up

QuickBooks Online for nonprofits provides a cost-effective, cloud-based tool well-suited to many organizations IF the software is set up to meet the specific needs of nonprofits (such as tracking restricted revenue and reporting to funders). Whether your organization has only recently received its 501(c)(3) status or is simply using accounting software and reporting formats that are due for a refresh, our accounting and finance specialists will work with you to set up QuickBooks Online and adapt it to the unique needs of your nonprofit.
