What Is Nonprofit Accounting Software?

Nonprofit organizations, associationschurches and faith-based ministries face different challenges than their for-profit counterparts. Among these challenges are a nonprofit’s accounting needs. Rather than managing sales and revenue, nonprofits have to manage donor contributions, fundraising events, grants, investment income, membership fees etc. In addition, with limited funds for administrative tasks and strict reporting requirements, such as FAS 116 and 117, nonprofit organizations can save time and money, while reducing the likelihood of reporting errors, by implementing a nonprofit accounting system.

Common Features of Nonprofit Accounting Software

Nonprofit accounting solutions aim to help organizations manage their finances in both an accurate and transparent manner. These solutions should include accounting features that are specific to nonprofits and enable them to:

  • Manage funds and donations: Nonprofits receive funds and donations from numerous sources (individuals, organizations and websites) and locations. They have to meticulously keep track of their earnings and expenses, as they may be subjected to federal audits. Any inconsistencies in their reports can subject them to reputation damage, fines or even legal action.
  •  
  • Integrate online donations with primary fund pool: Donations from different countries via websites or payment portals, such as PayPal, need to be reflected in the nonprofit’s main fund pool and not as a separate account.
  •  
  • Filter reports by varying transaction codes: Different transactions need to be assigned different codes for clarity and efficient fund management. Adding filters to expense and earnings reports will help users easily view these different transactions and provide clarity into how funds are used.
  •  
  • Generate reports in multiple format
