Project Overview

We are seeking a Virginia-based accountant to help us review our extremely limited books from last year ($30 donated via check, all else in-kind) and help us file a postcard IRS return. This volunteer will also train our curator on how to manage QuickBooks so that we're well set up to navigate our first major grant ($10k) for a Feminist Murder Ballad Festival this fall, and ensure we are appropriately managing donations related to a new postcard art-based membership program.

We are a new arts and agricultural nonprofit that just got its c(3) status last year after operating as a collective for the past several years with the support of in-kind donation of an arts retreat space on the James (Powhatan) River. We provide free time and space for a diverse cohort of creatives to work on passion projects as well as public programming, including an ongoing environmental art show, and a mutual aid really free market. We also have the roots of a food forest in-ground thanks to the James River buffer.

We have a curator with very basic knowledge of QuickBooks and ready to learn. We intend to manage our operations internally after getting set-up support and training from a qualified volunteer or raise general operating funds to outsource our bookkeeping once established.


Nonprofit Overview

We are an arts and agricultural nonprofit growing a resilient creative community by sharing time and natural space to develop the art of storytelling while literally nourishing our neighbors. We must imagine a better future where we celebrate differences that make us collectively stronger to grow that future.

Our collective is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, working to support arts programming, organizing professional creative development, and seeking community input about interpreting the property’s past—which includes ties to colonization and human bondage.

MidMountain operates from a five-acre retreat on the James River in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia that is also Andrea "River" Peterson's artist studio. The grounds are also being developed into a sustainable food forest with plans for agritourism and mutual aid distribution thanks to a River Buffer restoration partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the James River Association, and the Virginia Department of Forestry.
