Accounting and financial services for nonprofits on a mission


Only with financial clarity, can sound decisions be made.

Lisa S Gertsch LLC specializes in the nonprofit sector. We are committed to using our knowledge to provide organizations with useful financial data. Collectively we pool our experiences in auditing, internal control processes, information technology and general ledger accounting to provide a wealth of knowledge and support. 

Our Goals for You

Ideally, we’d like to make you self sufficient—or close!

  • After we make sure your accounting structure is informative and sustainable, we can train one of your staff to record the transactions, and then we’ll routinely review and analyze to make sure everything is on track.

But if you’d like us to handle everything, that’s fine too.

  • We can maintain your accounting information on an ongoing basis either in-house, or remotely.

We’re also here to handle any other routine or non-routine financial needs.  We can set-up the level of services you need. 


Common nonprofit accounting missteps:

  • Not properly tracking the spending of your restricted funding
  • Unable to quickly get accurate financial information
  • Not allocating overhead or shared expenses appropriately
  • Using QuickBooks as merely a check register instead of a multi-faceted reporting tool
  • Not being able to forecast your cash balance
  • Not understanding the Form 990's uses as a marketing tool

Lisa S. Gertsch LLC can remedy all of the above.
