Learn how to correctly set up your organization’s books, enter transactions common to nonprofits, and create nonprofit-specific reports with the new QuickBooks Made Easy Donation Program at TechSoup. The program includes donated QuickBooks Made Easy for Nonprofits training CD-ROMs which include lessons specifically for QuickBooks users at nonprofit organizations.

Each lesson is designed and led by CPA Gregg Bossen, who’s been teaching QuickBooks for over ten years. Training with QuickBooks Made Easy will help your staff better understand how QuickBooks works, how to enter nonprofit-specific transactions, and just about everything you need to know to get started.                  

Make the Most of QuickBooks at Your Organization

From these training CD-ROMs, novice QuickBooks users at your organization will learn to:

  • Perform the basic QuickBooks tasks most useful to nonprofits and libraries, including recording donations and grants, and entering expense transactions
  • Run nonprofit-specific reports such as a Budget to Actual Profit report, and a Loss and Expenses by Program report
  • Organize data for an annual audit and the IRS 990 form

Plus: those already familiar with QuickBooks and looking to improve how you’re using it can learn to create reports that:

  • Show how your organization’s programs are performing
  • Compare performance to the annual budget
  • Track restricted grants and pledges
  • Track membership dues and student tuition

The Details

This program includes both donated training CD-ROM (admin fee: $39) for organizations with annual budgets under $50,000, and discounted CD-ROMs (admin fee: $99) for organizations with budgets over $50,000. The lessons can be done with all Windows, Macintosh, and online versions of QuickBooks (with the exception of Simple Start.)

The QuickBooks Made Easy CD-ROM includes about five hours of video lessons, and comes with a printed follow-along handbook that can be used with the video lessons or separately. The CD-ROM can be used by anyone in your organization. However, it can only be used by one person at a time.
