In Wake of Pandemic, Nonprofit Conferences Move Online

by Diana Holder

The global pandemic has changed everything, it seems, even the beloved ritual of abandoning your cubicle to attend an annual conference. Gone are the days of sitting shoulder to shoulder in a packed conference room, in anticipation of this year's keynote speaker. Exchanging business cards while lingering over bagels and coffee is also off the table. But if you still find yourself craving the inspiration and renewal of a fall conference, you are in luck, because many of them have pivoted to an online format. Let's take a look at a few upcoming online events for nonprofit professionals as well as how to best approach the virtual conference experience.

LIVE Workshop:
Sending Donor Thank You Letters Through QuickBooks

Desktop Version: Wednesday, August 5, 2020
Online Version: Thursday, August 6, 2020

Do you struggle to send IRS-required thank you letters out to your donors? Did you know that you can actually send IRS-compliant donor thank you letters directly out of QuickBooks by either print or email? You can even do it with one click at the same time you are recording the donation! We are very excited to have Gregg Bossen, a CPA specializing in auditing nonprofits and president of QuickBooks Made Easy for Nonprofits, present this one of a kind and highly requested webinar! In this must-see session, we will cover what is legally required to be on a donor thank you letter, how to set up letter templates in QuickBooks that are IRS-compliant, how to email or print these letters directly out of QuickBooks, how to generate reports at year end for donors that list their donations, and how to deal with special event tickets when only a part of the payment is a donation.
