Accounting and financial services for nonprofits on a mission

 

Only with financial clarity, can sound financial decisions be made.

Lisa and her staff of consultants specialize in the nonprofit sector. They are committed to using their knowledge to provide organizations with useful financial data. Collectively they pool their 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 keeping tracking the spending of your restricted funds
  • Not allocating overhead expenses properly to your functional areas
  • Not forecasting your cash balance
  • Timely and accurate compliance reporting
  • Using Quickbooks as merely a check register instead of a multi-faceted reporting tool
  • Not understanding the use of a Form 990 as a marketing or development tool

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