Non-Profit Bookkeeping

Non-profit bookkeeping is one of the most complex types of bookkeeping. It is very different from small business bookkeeping, which you may be more familiar with. Managing the finances of a non-profit organization involves a unique set of challenges, including tracking multiple funding sources, ensuring compliance with donor restrictions, and providing detailed financial reports to stakeholders and regulatory bodies.

Understanding the Unique Challenges of Non-Profits

As a bookkeeper, you understand the importance of accurate financial management. However, non-profits operate under different rules and standards compared to for-profit businesses. From grant tracking to handling restricted revenue, the intricacies of non-profit bookkeeping require specialized knowledge and skills. Our course is designed to bridge that gap, equipping you with the expertise needed to navigate the complexities of non-profit financial management.

Understanding Non-Profits

In this class, you will learn how to create and maintain a chart of accounts tailored for non-profits, track program-specific revenue and expenses, and work effectively with a board of directors. These skills will not only enhance your proficiency as a bookkeeper but also empower you to make a meaningful impact on the financial health and sustainability of the non-profit organizations you serve.

Can I take this class with no bookkeeping experience?

This is an upper level course. Students should have at minimum a basic understanding of bookkeeping and accounting concepts. Students who are new to bookkeeping will need to put in the additional work to stay up to speed on the concepts taught during this course. 

What is the Jackie Method?

Heck yes, we coined our own method! 
The Jackie Method uses the 5 C's: 
  • Consistent - The same expenses are coded to the same accounts time and time again
  • Current - The books are up to date
  • Correct - The data is entered correctly (need we say more?!)
  • Concise - The financial reports are as short as possible - no fluff around here!
  • Confidence - Most important! We want you to feel confident in the work you do. Enough so that you feel comfortable answering questions management has and saying “That’s a good question. Let me check on that.” Instead of guessing or panicking.
