QuickBooks for Nonprofits class meets Friday, Feb. 20, in Powell

Posted February 9, 2009

P O W E L L, W y o. - Nonprofit organizations in the Big Horn Basin are invited to learn how to streamline their bookkeeping systems in a QuickBooks for Nonprofits workshop that meets from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20, in the Northwest College Center for Training and Development in Powell. Included in the workshop is a unique opportunity to become familiar with the newest QuickBooks software using a 140-day trial CD that participants can install on their personal computers. Students will train on QuickBooks Nonprofit software, learning how to run reports, track program budgets, donations, and more. They'll also work with a new feature in the 2009 program that displays up-to-the minute information on income and expenses, vendor balances and important reminders. The expectation is for participants to become comfortable with the software and concepts before completing the class, so there's plenty of hands-on work with real-life accounts. To this end, students are asked to bring their December bank statements, January transactions, and chart of accounts, if available. Follow-up training can be arranged with the instructor after the session. The $150 cost for the workshop includes lunch, the 2009 QuickBooks Student Guide (manual) and 140-day trial CD. All participants will be entered into a drawing for a free copy of the QuickBooks 2009 Premier Accountants Edition.
