We're a legit non-profit (501-c, or what not, with the TIN etc), but even quickbooks is $50, and we're all cheap.
So I'm tinkering with both learning a new language/framework and doing it myself.
I think what we'd track is really the usual:
there's a FY budget the board approves with both expenses and income (by various categories). Actual expenses and income would be put in one of the categories (and reports generated planned-vs-actual).
There's also grant-tracking. Some grants we get are a check with no oversight (free money that goes into the general fund). Some are restricted funds (must be used for the project as described in the grant application, and may have reporting requirements). So tracking those is a bit trickier. (I'm not on the hook for reporting, but I think I have to track the $)
Quickbooks kinda-sorta lets you categorize expenses (and income), but doesn't seem to do reports of planned-vs-actual etc.
Sounds like an easy project, right ? What's something all the kids are using now-a-days that'd be a fun learn ? I'm assuming a DB backend of some type, but ..
