Limited time only: Discount Enrollment in FMA's Webinar: Using QuickBooks as a Small Nonprofit

Inexpensive, user-friendly, and widely used across the nonprofit sector, QuickBooks is often the best choice for small organizations with limited resources to invest in accounting software. However, originally designed for companies in the for-profit realm, QuickBooks has limitations when it comes to tracking and reporting on restricted donations and grants.

Over the course of working with many organizations to build and strengthen financial management systems, FMA has refined a series of QuickBooks customizations and "workarounds" to help facilitate nonprofit accounting in this for-profit system.

FMA experts will deliver a virtual learning series on how to use QuickBooks to "operationalize" financial management best practices. Consisting of two hour-long web-based workshops, the series includes practical tips and guidelines for using QuickBooks to meet nonprofit financial reporting needs.

Eligible nonprofits can receive 25% off of enrollment for the spring course, held May 27th, 2015 from 2-3:30pm EDT.
