I am thinking we will need to get QuickBooks to manage our finances. Do we you recommend the nonprofit version? I have not looked much into this yet. Any input is greatly appreciated.

I don’t think you need the Nonprofit version of QuickBooks. Usually the Pro version is sufficient. The Nonprofit edition is helpful if you receive a grant and need to track grant expenses.
I usually recommend online accounting software instead of purchasing a desktop version. Online accounting means that several people can access your accounting records from their home computers. That’s very important. It also downloads your bank transactions automatically!
QuickBooks Online. You may be eligible for a free version of QuickBooks Online. I wrote about it here: Use QuickBooks Online for free
Wave Accounting. I set up a small nonprofit on Wave recently. It’s working for them and it’s free!
Aplos Software which is popular with nonprofits and churches.
I discuss software options in a chapter in Money Management in a Homeschool Organization,
