Important Information About Non Profit Organizations

By June 10, 2015 January 21st, 2020 No Comments

In a recent blog post from the AICPA, Christopher Cole, CPA, CFF, and CGMA, discusses the importance of non profit organizations to understand their finances to run an effective organization. Many non profits are run by volunteers of whom many do not fully grasp the complicated rules governing their organizations. Cole offers three important points that can be transferable to many different nonprofit organizations:

  1. Understand the implications of hiring a professional fundraiser
  2. Be aware of “unrelated business expenses”
  3. Reporting on grants is more complicated than you might realize

At Brickley DeLong, we aim to help understand each unique non profit organization and their specific tax implications. We would be pleased with the opportunity to discuss your non profit and how these (or other) items relate to your organization.
