NFP Partners has been working with nonprofit organizations for years, providing accounting software tools and added-value services.
Our initial focus was on nonprofits that had outgrown their entry-level accounting software, such as QuickBooks or Sage 50 (formerly Peachtree). In some cases, these nonprofits were using commercial software that was not suited to handle their organization’s accounting differences.
