Over the years, teamCFO has seen nonprofits faced with the same fiscal and management problems as other businesses. Focusing with passion on the mission and the desire to do good, nonprofits management often makes the mistake of ignoring internal financial systems. What nonprofits need to understand is the crucial need to have sound financial processes to support the organization.
When it comes to the tough job of raising funds, maintaining programs, serving clients’ needs, the pressure is on nonprofits. teamCFO understands the ongoing challenge of nonprofits to make sure hard earned grants and donations are put into programs and adequately cover the administrative burden.
Experienced in nonprofit operations, nonprofit accounting including 2 CFR Part 230 (OMB A-122) A-133, Form 990, the financial experts at teamCFO can guide your nonprofit through the maze of government accounting and compliance as well as monitoring restricted funds and contributions.
Instead of confusing accounting practices and difficulty in managing required reporting for various parties, your nonprofit can experience the financial management stability that leads to higher donations and better mission execution.
