Tracks to Success

Madam C. J. Walker's Generous Philanthropy
The Gospel of Giving of America's First Female Self-Made Millionaire

by Sid Davis

Coming from humble beginnings often prefaces the stories of highly successful people, but few rags to riches tales begin in more meager circumstances than those of Sarah Breedlove. She was born just after the end of the U.S. Civil War, in 1867, in the federally partitioned U.S. south, in the Fifth Military District encompassing Louisiana. It was a time of soaring hopes for African Americans, but southerners soon began fighting back against Black emancipation, principally by erecting the apartheid regime known as Jim Crow, slowly expanding racist laws until nearly every avenue toward equality was blocked. It was in this reality that Breedlove came of age.

LIVE Workshop: Tracking Restricted Grants in QuickBooks

DESKTOP Version: Wednesday, December 9, 2020
ONLINE Version: Thursday, December 10, 2020

Do you receive grants that are restricted in some way? Do you struggle to complete grant spending reports at the end of a grant? Do you spend hours going through transactions and payroll reports trying to figure out which expenses were paid for from a grant? And what about grants with a budget by account that must be adhered to? By simply setting up a few things, you can easily get a P&L for each of your restricted grants (compared to budget if you'd like). See reports for your grants all on one screen and in real time. All of this and more can be easily tracked right in your QuickBooks software. We are very excited to have Gregg Bossen, a CPA specializing in nonprofits and president of QuickBooks Made Easy for Nonprofits, deliver one of his most popular webinars exclusively for us! During this webinar, you will learn how and where to set up your grantors, how to enter grant revenue, how to point expenses to a grant, how to enter grant budgets, how to generate and memorize reports on your grants, and how to deal with future year grants received this year that make it look like you made much more money than you did. Don't miss this opportunity. You will be VERY glad you came!
