The New Financial Reporting Roadmap for Nonprofits in the New Year

The New Financial Reporting Roadmap for Nonprofits in the New Year by Saeward Schillaci, The Resource Group

If you work for a nonprofit, you probably experience certain financial headaches that are unique to your type of organization. By their very nature, nonprofits are required to have clear goals and transparent finances. A nonprofit needs accurate, understandable financial reporting to show to its boards, committees, and donors as well as to make decisions that will help accomplish the mission of the organization without wasting resources.
