MIP Fund Accounting Software

A Purpose-Built Alternative to Quickbooks for Nonprofits and Associations

Is Quickbooks Holding Your Organization Back?

Quickbooks (also know as QBO – QuickBooks Online), is accounting software developed for small business accounting. While geared toward small-to-medium businesses, many nonprofits have used the platform as a basic alternative to investing in a true fund accounting solution. As time goes by, however, the spreadsheets and double entries pile up, the inefficiencies and errors mount, and the simplest tasks become unnecessarily complex.

Track, manage, scale and grow with today’s leading Quickbooks alternative for Nonprofits and Associations.
