This is not the most updated version. If you are using QuickBooks 2019 and QuickBooks 2020 editions, please order QuickBooks for Nonprofits & Churches-A Step-By-Step Guide for the Pro, Premier, and Nonprofit Versions by Lisa London.
Accounting for nonprofit organizations can be quite different than for-profit businesses. Most books and guides available today are focused on either QuickBooks® or nonprofit accounting alone, but not both.
Geared toward people without QuickBooks experience, Using QuickBooks® for Nonprofit Organizations, Associations & Clubs shows the reader how to set up and use QuickBooks® in a nonprofit environment. Lisa London, The Accountant Beside You, walks you through QuickBooks for Nonprofit Organizations from start to finish. With her friendly easy-to-understand style, and step-by-step instructions and screenshots, Lisa guides new QuickBooks users every step of the way, while her tips for how to make QuickBooks work better for nonprofits provides new procedures for even the experienced bookkeeper. Not only does she take you through how to set up QuickBooks and utilize it more efficiently for your organization, but she also covers everything you need to know to implement controls and procedures to ensure that your money is always protected.
The step-by-step instructions and hundreds of screen shots explain how to:
Manage member dues, fundraisers, and trips
Track grants and contracts
Allocate overhead to programs & grants
Set up internal accounting controls to protect the money
Track volunteer hours
and much more.

Here's what verified Amazon purchaser's have to say about Lisa London's flagship book, QuickBooks® for Churches and Other Religious Organizations:
"I have been a church treasurer for more than 8 years and purchased this book to help "grow" our church QB system to automate reports and information required by our diocese and to track some nuanced restricted/unrestricted gifts. I found it helpful as a reference for best practices that go beyond Quickbooks accounting AND as a "how-to" manual with straightforward, step-by-step instructions to set up the chart of accounts, the item list and other specific QB tools. I'd recommend this as an office reference for churches of all sizes and accounting systems." Lois Wallenhost
"We are transitioning from Quicken to Quickbooks and Lisa's book has been outstanding. Her book has been extremely helpful in assisting me in making the transition from Quicken to Quickbooks. As well as understanding the differences for a church trying to utilize a commerce-focused product (Quickbooks) as a religious organization.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone!" James Underwood
"This is a great resource to have by your side if you are setting up QB or already using QB's. It is very easy to understand and explained in detail. I also was able to communicate with Lisa via email, and she was a huge blessing! Very prompt and thorough in answering any questions I had. I would highly recommend this book to all users that need to get a better feel for the essentials of using QB's. There is also a handbook you can purchase that will be helpful as a companion guide to the book as well." Michelle Vandehey
