Why Sage for not-for-profit organisations?
Successful management of a not-for-profit organisation requires providing high-quality service, but at the same time, careful administration of expenses and improving processes are ongoing requirements. Each type of not-for-profit organisation has unique needs.
(i) Social service and government agencies require meticulous reporting practices, essential for meeting regulatory compliance and securing future funding.
(ii) Professional and trade associations are tasked with managing business events as well as maintaining education and certification records.
(iii) Civic, fraternal, and religious organisations have complex membership relationship issues and vital fundraising projects.
Sage offers powerful business management solutions focused on the common needs of not-for-profit organisations.
