Did you know that most small businesses owners spend 10 hours per week balancing their books? That equates to about 25% of a 40-hour work week spent on non-revenue generating or mission-related tasks. We know social impact executives often work longer hours than most but still - 10 hours is probably 9 hours too many don’t you think?
But are you ready to outsource your accounting function?
How do you know when the time is right?
Ask yourself these questions:
Most nonprofit leaders were not born to be CFOs. Many social impact executives come from a marketing or fundraising background. The choice to hire an accounting firm can give marketing-minded executives piece of mind. It’s like bringing on the perfect business partner with complementary expertise. A ‘balanced’ partnership (accounting pun intended). ;)
So, what exactly can an outsourced accounting firm do for your organization?
Our team at Blue Fox offers all of those services and more! Blue Fox is an accounting firm specifically for nonprofits and social enterprises. Our team members have broad expertise in the social impact space, with backgrounds as nonprofit leaders, board members and volunteers. The entrepreneurial spirit runs deep on our team.
