QuickBooks is a great accounting software package, but it can be overwhelming. I have some suggestions to help you learn QuickBooks or get the help you need to use it correctly.
TechSoup (the program that offers QuickBooks online for free to nonprofit organizations) offers videos:
QuickBooks for Existing Nonprofit Users a more advanced video
Techsoup also has some blog posts on QuickBooks.
Running QuickBooks in Nonprofits by Kathy Ivens is a great book. My go-to-referral for all things QuickBooks.
The resources listed above are helpful, but they are not specific to homeschool organizations.
I can recommend some homeschool moms and dads with bookkeeping experience who can help you. They know QuickBooks and have experience with homeschool organizations. These wonderful bookkeepers can help you get setup (that’s the hardest part), do a monthly or quarterly check up to see if you’re using the software correctly, or fix your QuickBooks file if you’ve blundered it up.
Email me to get a recommendation of a homeschool-friendly QuickBooks expert.
