He’s makin’ a list, checkin’ it twice, gonna find out, who’s naughty or nice… You know the song. And when it comes to your nonprofit organization, the universal means to determining whether you’re slated to receive lots of toys n goodies, or a lump o’ coal in your stocking? That’s right: transparency. It’s the barometer by which your NPO is judged and assessed. If you were running a for-profit business, you’d be expected to produce real-time financial reports, complete with proper documentation so investors can have a clear picture. As a nonprofit organization, you’re expected to produce and maintain a complete transaction audit trail so donors can see how their donations/funds are being utilized.

While a nonprofit relies on donations without expecting a tangible product or service in return, that same NPO is expected to manage the funds responsibly while ensuring that the money is used for its designated noble cause(s). So, when your most generous donor, Mr. Coyote, presents a sizeable check for the ACME Rocket Foundation, he’s expecting that the funds will be properly allocated for their intended charity and noble cause (The Young Rocket Builders’ Club, The Green Rocket Project: Building Zero-Emissions Rockets for the future, and many more).

The naughty list

Lack of nonprofit transparency

Most entry level accounting software systems lack complete data transparency. And unfortunately, there’s a handful of super villains taking advantage of the donations that your NPO received. So, what happens when your NPO lacks transparency? . . .

  • Funds are misallocated, misdirected, lost, or otherwise, not utilized for their intended purpose(s).

  • Trust is lost and the relationship is severed, sometimes beyond repair. Without transparency, you’re offering no clear, reliable way to show your donors that, essentially, you’re doing exactly what you promised. And without Mr. Coyote’s trust, ACME Rocket Foundation’s financial lifeline evaporates into nothing, and you’re left with a lump of coal in your NPO stocking. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
