Flourishing Amid Chaos

by Dave Parker

In my first post of this series on social enterprise, I defined a social enterprise as an ongoing initiative offering services or products for sale that generate net revenue, while also yielding measurable social impact. I promised that I would next provide a lens through which to view social enterprise and offer ways to cultivate the conditions for success. Since that post, we've continued to feel the devastating effects of COVID-19 and are in the midst of even more upheaval with the protests stemming from the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police. The demands for your services are likely increasing while revenues are falling, and the future uncertain. I want to acknowledge these realities and to confess that writing about social enterprise during these times can feel a bit, well, tone deaf.

LIVE Workshop: Tracking Volunteers in QuickBooks

DESKTOP Version: Wednesday, July 22, 2020
ONLINE Version: Thursday, July 23, 2020

Are you tracking your volunteers' contact information somewhere? What about the hours they worked? What they did? Many grantors will allow volunteer hours to count towards meeting the matching requirements for a grant, so it is important to keep track of volunteer activity. All of this information can be easily tracked right in your QuickBooks software. To help you with this process, 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. In this webinar, you will learn how to set up your volunteers in QuickBooks either manually or by import, query to find a volunteer that possesses a skill that you may need, set up and enter time for volunteers by activity, generate volunteer reports, and get QuickBooks to calculate the exact amount of match created. Don't miss this opportunity! You will be VERY glad you came!
