    I am a long-time user, and will continue to be!

    Pros

    The QuickBooks interface has always been, and continues to be, extremely easy to navigate. It is very intuitive (pardon the pun!) and is fairly consistent across different versions, which I found important when I was a sole practioner.

    Cons

    The lack of ability to perform consolidations places what I believe to be the only severe limitation on this product. Thus, if you operate more than one entity, it is not as useful a product.

    Pros

    It’s cheap, easy to use. If you were a single-fund NPO, with a single designation, it might work if you have time to work around the limitations.

    Cons

    QB-“Non-Profit” does not comply with FAS 116 and FAS 117. It has no “dimension” for Fund Class (Temporarily or permantly restricted, unrestricted, etc. It needs an additional dimension - “Designation”, which is a subset of the Fund Class. It has neither of these. It has no process to update the net assets for the activity of each year in these Fund Classes and designations, which don’t exist.

    Pros

    - All of the basics are here! Even has nonprofit-specific reports. Any CRM should integrate with Quickbooks seamlessly.

    Cons

    - To use the Nonprofit-specific reports, you must be using customers (donors). Some CRM's do not import with customers here (for example, one organization I work with's CRM imports the donor name into the Memo field, so the nonprofit reports are useless to them).

    Quickbooks is often simple to use, but it could be more user-friendly. There are not a lot of tips for ease of use.

    Cons

    There should be more self-explanatory ways to track grants and donors and tools to help manage your work.

    Pros

    My company uses Quickbooks Nonprofit specifically for payroll services. It has certain features absent from quickbooks online. Namely the ability to use multiple classes for an individual.
    The software is very affordable and if you work for a small to medium sized nonprofit organization, this is probably the best value.
    The software is very user friendly, and even a non-accountant can be quite proficient.

    Cons

    The software is not easily transfered to other software programs. For instance, even when you export a report to Excel, it includes blank spaces between columns, and some include row headers in different columns. This makes some cleaning up necessary if a pivot table is desired.

    It is very easy to use and accurate!

    Pros

    Makes it easy to make invoices and donation statements. Nice way to see customer history and keep up with who owes money and who doesn't.

    Cons

    Direct deposit and tax payment services are kind of pricy. We changed to a different software due to the cost. A lot of times when we have to call tech support it is hard to understand the tech. I know this is farmed out overseas and that is fine, but would be nice if phone connections were better and accents weren't so thick.

    We are able to use Quickbooks to carry out all of our financial functions and easily keep track of everything. I would definitely use it unless you need high volume programs and can afford software that integrates other functions (like donor tracking, record keeping, etc)

    Pros

    QuickBooks Non-Profit is an excellent choice for nonprofit accounting. IT is very easy to enter information, make adjustments and run reports. As a nonprofit, we are constantly generating that information for grants and donors - so it is very easy.

    Cons

    Managing donor data is easy to a point, if you have another donor database you might run into some difficulty trying to track contributions or donations.

    I'm beyond pleased to see how easy QuickBooks has made managing your organization, and appreciate the review. With this said. I'd like to discuss which point the donor database gives you trouble. Because the system easily integrates with other programs, I'll find steps you can take to keep tracking simple. Could you send me an email directly at qbcares@intuit.com? I'll dig right in, and look forward to hearing from you. Jess, The QuickBooks Team

    I want you to have all the info you deserve about why support incurs a fee and the reasons behind updates, Sue. While many subscription-based products have support included in the monthly charge (like Online), our standalone Desktop products are billed once upon purchase. Instead of charging more for the product itself, the price is kept at a lower rate by offering advanced support separately. There's more about support plans, and what you can still get without them, at https://community.intuit.com/articles/1501198. Additionally, the need to upgrade the program, and discontinue older products, is a decision predicated on the assurance you will receive top of the line software and support. As older products are retired, all attention can be given to the most secure and feature-laden service on the market. Before I forget, thanks for reaching out with your review. Happy filming to you and your team at Rehoboth Beach Film Society, by the way. Break a leg! Jess, The QuickBooks Team

    ease of use and most reporting.

    Pros

    Reporting is mostly good, easy entries solving the double entry accounting needed in a single entry; vendor set up is easy;customer invoicing is streamlined; bill paying is clear

    Cons

    This software will not perform detailed reports for donor tracking; cannot compare actual to budgeted costs at a single point in time for actuals, that is, cannot run a report to show actuals to date versus an annual budget which is the most frustrating thing about quickbooks, reporting has to be to a month or a year compared to the same period.

    Pros

    I assist a family member with a non profit organization from time to time and she uses this product and was the one who introduced me to it. I use the regular format for my job, but I really like the simplicity of the report aspect.

    Cons

    There isn't anything that I don't like about it. It makes doing business easy. I really like the self help section.

    I love this system and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a donor management system that can do it all !

    Pros

    Its got all the bells and whistles. it can pull donation information directly from the donation page.you can keep lots of information on donors and use that information to do searches.

    Cons

    It can get really pricey but you pay for what you get also it take awhile to learn but the customer service line is always there to help.
