NFP Partners’ mission is to help nonprofit and governmental organizations become stronger financial managers. For mid-size organizations, we provide accounting and fundraising software tools and for smaller organizations, we offer outsourced accounting services. We have found our proverbial niche and can say with confidence that the last seven years of effort was definitely worth it. We are now an organization of five full-time professionals with strong potential for growth, which will allow us to do more for the not-for-profit community. To accent this, I recently received an email from a client complimenting our service performance and our newsletter’s high-quality content. We appreciate the kudos, but as I have mentioned before, we are continuously taking stock of our strengths and weaknesses in order to expand and improve our services.
One of our current tasks is to streamline and document our policies and processes and to use cloud-based and mobile technology. We also want to succeed in the marketing game by increasing our recognition and footprint as a creditable resource so potential clients will come to know us, like us, trust us, which will lead to engaging our services and referring us to others. A large part of this approach is to reach out to nonprofit managers and provide useful information that includes but goes beyond the narrower confines of technology and accounting. We want to become the recognized go-to resource for all things financial for nonprofits. If you go to our website, you will see some evidence of this, including our download library and blog. Our website will get even better as we develop additional content for our own practice, such as financial policies and procedures and best practices. We will share these with the community at large via the website, blog, and newsletter.
As part of this proactive approach, we hope to become more actively engaged with our MIP Fund Accounting software clients and users. We are asking for ideas and input on the kinds of programs and information that would be most useful and then will design the best methods for delivery. We have designed an online survey for all MIP users. The survey will remain available until the end of February. I urge those who have not yet responded to click here to complete it.
I am always open to your ideas and suggestions and would love to hear from you. Please contact me a 303-586-5011 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
