Session Overview

We are seeking advice on how to re-structure our Quickbooks accounting so that we can show restricted fund income and expenditures separate from our budgeted Profit and Loss Activities. We still want funders and our board to see how much we are earning in restricted grants and spending on mission-focused programming. And we want to clearly, concisely and accurately track expenditures of grant funds over multiple years. We need someone who has experience using Tags, Projects and Classes to provide insight/advice on what would work best.


Nonprofit Overview

Friends of the New Orleans Public Library (FNOPL) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for and supporting New Orleans Public Library (NOPL) programming, services and staff development by engaging with and strengthening the diverse Greater New Orleans Community and promoting literacy for all.

Since 1957, FNOPL has underwritten vital library programming. In addition to the summer reading program, skill building workshops and adult literacy programs, FNOPL provides scholarships for NOPL librarians to pursue advanced degrees. Our volunteers support our work by providing thousands of volunteer service hours each year to further bridge the gap where city funding ends.
