CPE Webinar: Financial Reporting for Churches and Nonprofits

by Aplos Success Team

Nonprofits and churches are special. You know this and we know this. But why is that, exactly? Among countless other things, one major distinguishing factor is their use of fund accounting. This is a unique brand of accounting that is often misunderstood and can lead to difficulties when trying to produce effective reports. Join us as Alex Acree, CPA and fund accounting expert, walks through the basics of fund accounting and the reports nonprofits and churches should be able to produce with ease.

NOTE: CPE credit is only offered for attending the live webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review fund accounting and how it differentiates nonprofits and churches from other types of entities
  2. Discuss Chart of Accounts Design Theory and other categorical options
  3. Walk through standard reports and reporting capabilities that are needed for every nonprofit and church
  4. Consider other common reports that nonprofits and churches may need


Alex Acree, Head of the Support Department at Aplos Software, has worked with thousands of nonprofits and churches in setting up their accounts and building the reports they require. He will give a detailed lesson on how to accomplish this for your nonprofit and church clients.
