In 1976, I assisted my grandmother with the budget for our local museum. The impression was indelible of how much work goes into Non-Profit organizations and how little funding gets the job done. This experience inspired my career in accounting and my commitment to helping Non-Profit agencies.

Since then, I have served Non-Profits in many capacities (member, organizer, officer, volunteer, treasurer, board member, controller, contractor, supporter and auditor) but have always had a heart to help the cause. Having seen Non-Profits from such diverse angles, I have accumulated an insight for how they operate and how they struggle.

Accounting Made Simple is proud to assist local organizations with discounted rates and affordable volunteer training to help them in their mission.
