Community and Advocacy nonprofits play a vital role in supporting economic development on the front lines. They are made up of passionate and experienced leaders who are driven to carry out a mission of developing and strengthening skills within specific communities. These organizations provide services to their members that help improve their abilities, instincts, processes, and resources. Community and Advocacy groups are part of a large subset of nonprofit and charitable organizations, which include research institutes, neighborhood development, community service organizations, and countless others. These not-for-profit organizations are different from similar for-profit groups and require elevated support services to be able to continue serving their members.
The world needs more Community and Advocacy organizations, however, if you’re behind the scenes at an advocacy organization or a Community Improvement and Capacity group, then you may feel Community and Advocacy nonprofits need more support from the world. That’s where JFW Accounting Services comes in. At JFW, we understand that the obstacles faced by community nonprofits are unique. We take pride in our ability to connect with our clients, understand their focus and needs, and work to provide solutions to increase efficiency and we remain focused on the group’s purpose.
Community and Advocacy Organizations must stay attentive to the good of the group, so being inundated with inefficient processes would not work. Challenges like manual, inaccurate, or delayed reporting caused by outdated accounting software and processes can create productivity gaps that negatively impact the entire community. At JFW, we realize that Community and Advocacy leaders need to have real-time financial visibility to assist in decision-making and to maintain transparency. We understand that a large portion of revenues comes from government funding, foundation grants, and donations. We know recording those restricted and unrestricted funds can be cumbersome, and we have robust, cloud-based solutions to help.
