Accounting & Finance

To sustain and enhance mission impact, nonprofit organizations need insight into their organizations’ unique challenges and opportunities. But too often, critical tools like financial reports or accounting software are barriers to insights – 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 is pleased to offer consulting and coaching engagements designed to equip your organization with accounting and financial tools and resources which provide insights into your financial health and empower nonprofit boards and staffs to make decisions with confidence.
