A nonprofit I worked with previously decided to give bookkeeping duties to their grant writers. And this was on top of their normal grant writing duties. Not in lieu of.
Slowly but surely, they started focusing more on bookkeeping and admin tasks instead of grant writing. And of course, the organization fell well short of their required grant revenue.
After seeing the shortfall, I recommended they outsource their accounting work to a professional. And within weeks of their grant writers going back to that, their grant revenue returned to what they needed.
Moral of the story – outsourcing your accounting has your personnel doing what they do best. And then your nonprofit will run smoothly and efficiently.
I’m starting a new project where I will be helping nonprofits get their accounting in order, improve, automate, and so much more.
If you are struggling with this, please book a call as soon as possible.
