Mountain iconThe Challenge

Prior to working with Jitasa, Family Promise of Forsyth County managed their own finances, recording their own revenue and expenses and compiling their own statements. However, it caused a lot of anxiety for their team. While they knew they were careful to enter everything accurately, their executive director lost sleep over concerns about whether their team used the best accounting practices, especially those specific to nonprofit accounting. Their team, while able financial experts, lacked confidence in the intricacies and specific requirements of nonprofit accounting. The executive director vowed to find a way to use their accounting system to work smarter rather than harder.

Now, reports are timely and accurate and the Family Promise team rests easier at night knowing that their financial needs are in the hands of nonprofit accounting experts.
