Non Profit Organisations

More and more non-profit organisations are recognising the need to run professionally as though they were a business. This does not mean that they change their focus from the objectives for which they were established.

If you are involved in running a non-profit entity, you will need to comply with many of the same laws that apply to businesses. For example, if you employ staff, you will be bound by all of the compliance requirements that apply to employers.

Many of the best practice guidelines that apply to businesses, will also apply to you. One can argue that the ethical responsibilities for non-profits to be held accountable to their members and donors, warrants the most meticulous attention to accounting, budgeting and cash flow management. The similarities do not end here. The most effective non-profits are those that follow best practice in respect of governance, leadership, strategy development, marketing and promotion, and so the list goes on.

There are very few affordable support services available that can adequately deal with the day-to-day issues that arise from time to time in non-profit organisations. Some non-profits are fortunate enough to have access to members with high levels of expertise, but there is a limit to which one can call upon their goodwill to offer free advice and support.

This is where FBA comes in. We work with leading organisations to provide you with the very best advice and support, and it is all very affordable.
