Information for Non-Profits
Non-profits play an important role in the communities that they serve. They provide much needed services that otherwise may be limited or not accessible to the community in need. Just like any other business, non-profits need to run efficiently and effectively to ensure their longevity so that they can continue to provide to the needs of the community. There are various resources available to assist non-profit organizations.
