The course will start by introducing what a not-for-profit organization is. We will discuss regulation, taxation, and performance issues related to the not-for-profit organization. As we discuss accounting for not-for-profit organizations, we will make comparisons to for-profit organizations, concentrating most of our time on the areas where accounting concepts differ between the two.
Next, we will get into the details of accounting for not-for-profit organizations, discussing generally accepted accounting principles and the recording of transactions.
We will then take a look at example problems, recoding transactions related to a not-for-profit organization. We will work through example problems in a presentation format.

Learners can enter data into the preformatted worksheets in a step-by-step process following instructional videos.
