Share your finance skills to help small business owners with bookkeeping (training provided)

Save to Favorites



COVID-19 has impacted many small businesses. Setting up a bookkeeping system, and categorizing financial transactions are essential for a small business but can be daunting and scary at first! That’s where you come in! As a finance volunteer, you can offer one-on-one advice to an entrepreneur during 1 hour virtual consultation(s).

  • Are you a good fit? This virtual volunteer opportunity is for you if you are located in the United States and if:
    • you are just starting as a bookkeeper
    • you have been managing the books of a small business for a while
    • or if you are an early career finance professional or finance/business student who does not yet have bookkeeping skills but is willing to learn (we provide training). This is a great opportunity to build your resume and acquire new skills!
  • What will you be doing? Once approved as a volunteer, we will connect you with an entrepreneur or several (depending on your availability) to set up virtual consultation(s). During this time, you will teach the entrepreneur the basics of bookkeeping and help them set up a bookkeeping system (such as Quickbooks or Wave).
  • What is the time commitment? 1-2 consultations with an entrepreneur, 1 hour each (plus preparation time prior to the consultation) to fit into your schedule.
  • Do we provide resources to get started? If you don’t have previous bookkeeping experience, we offer a multi-part training to help you get started and learn the basics of bookkeeping.

Ready to volunteer and support small businesses? Join our awesome community of volunteers by completing and submitting your application here: (select "Financial Program" and "Bookkeeping/Accounting consultation" as the opportunity). We welcome multilingual volunteers, particularly those able to support Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help under-resourced entrepreneurs create thriving businesses in underserved areas so owners can build wealth for themselves, their families and their communities. We do this by activating a network of top-tier professional volunteers like you to deliver pro-bono legal, financial and marketing services, personally nurturing each business owner’s success.


Start Small Think Big is a non-profit organization founded 11 years ago in New York City.

Over the past few years, we have successfully expanded our work to San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. We are now in the midst of another period of rapid growth and expansion, as we work to replicate our model nationally and grow existing programs to serve larger numbers of entrepreneurs.

We work with entrepreneurs who are of color, women, members of under-resourced groups, and/or low-income - with business revenues under $1M. Services are delivered across three core programmatic areas: the legal program, the financial program, and the marketing program. To learn more about us and our impact, visit our website:
