Our small nonprofit organization has passed the threshold of annual revenue at which a review of financial statements is required by the state, so we need a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) to do a review. We have been on Quickbooks Online for a few years, so we can provide easy access to our books if needed.
We already filed the IRS form 990 and can email it, our P & L and Balance sheet and any other information. The finances are pretty basic, as our expenses have always been less than $150,000, and were only $76,000 last FY. The only paid staff member was our Executive Director, and he volunteered 90% of his time and was paid only $6,000. Most of our work is done by volunteers.
You can be anywhere in the U.S. The state, which is Massachusetts, doesn't require the CPA to be from the state. They said they just need a typical review of financial statements, and that they don’t have any requirements beyond normal reviewed financial statements -
We’ve always used Quickbooks, and when we set up our books in 2004, we used the nonprofit Unified Chart of Accounts (UCOA), which was created by a group of nonprofit CPAs as an ideal chart of accounts that matches up exactly with IRS requirements and with the lines of the 990 -
Our nonprofit is working on some exciting new projects:
1) a group of innovative websites and apps to help nonprofits and their supporters raise money for the good work they do. Here is a sample of a nonprofit’s page at one of the websites, named Volunteerathon -
Here is a sample of a volunteer’s page ... most people will volunteer with a nonprofit, but we’re building it so people who are using their time to help people directly (not through a nonprofit) can also use the app to raise money for charity:
Another website is Quitathon, where a person quits something that's not good for them and donates some or all of the saved money or time to charity:http://bit.do/Quitathon. We have many other great ideas for these kinds of apps that all nonprofits and their supporters can use.2) a project to free some of the world's 25 million modern-day slaves -http://www.virtualrailroad.org. After the above is done, we plan to also do others such as: http://bit.do/Freeathon, http://bit.do/seeourslaves and http://bit.do/EmancipationProclamation. They will all be at domains that correspond with their name such as Freeathon.org. 3) an existing website that provides news related to making the world a better place covering various topics including nonprofits, human rights, extreme poverty, climate change, giving and volunteering - http://DailySource.org. This site has existed for over 10 years. You can see a few of the team members here - http://DailySource.org/about/team. If you're potentially interested in doing the review, please let us know. Many thanks.
