Not-For-Profit

UNMATCHED INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE

Not-for-profit's support system is greatly affected by today’s tough economic climate.

Not-for-profit organizations are often at the mercy of the economy. However, when the economy takes a downturn, many not-for-profit organizations experience an uptick in the demand for their services. This means when they are needed the most, donations and grants often dry up.

HRSS understands the tight position in which not-for-profit entities are. Unlike for-profit organizations whose goal is reducing costs and maximizing revenues for shareholders and owners. Not-for-profit organizations aim to safeguard their tax-exempt status and ensure their revenue is higher than cost to execute their mission properly. Through its accounting and financial services, HRSS can preserve a not-for-profit organization’s status and thus help them fulfill their mission of helping people.

Some of the not-for-profit organizations that benefit from HRSS’s services include:

  • Educational institutions
  • Global non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
  • Religious organizations
  • Charities and charitable foundations
  • Performing arts groups
  • Cultural organizations
  • Benevolent organizations
  • Hospital foundations
  • Advocacy groups

Not-for-profit organizations have two primary concerns:

  • Compliance
  • Protecting their funding.

HRSS understands that without meeting these concerns, not-for-profit organizations cannot fulfill their mission of helping people.

Preserving an organization’s not-for-profit status under federal and state tax law is essential to keeping the organization’s funds where it can do the greatest good. Additionally, not-for-profit organizations that take grants must comply with private grant rules and government audit regulations if the program accepts government grants.

Perform Your Core Mission as a Not-For-Profit Organization Better with HRSS

Not-for-profit organizations are sometimes buffeted by forces outside their control. A slow economy can take a toll on contributions while increasing the need for its services. Running a not-for-profit organization under these circumstances can require all the focus and energy of the organization’s administrators.

However, there are circumstances within the control of the not-for-profit organization. By hiring HRSS to provide accounting and financial services, the organization can avoid the worry of maintaining its not-for-profit status, be compliant with grant rules and government regulations, and make smart decisions about preserving and growing its endowment. This allows the organization to focus on its core mission rather than being distracted by financial and accounting concerns.
