The South Carolina Arts Alliance, in cooperation with the Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelley Foundation and the South Carolina Arts Commission, is announcing a workshop for arts nonprofits on the subject of QuickBooks, the most commonly used financial accounting software for nonprofits and small businesses, on January 18, 2018 at the College of Charleston’s North Campus in North Charleston, SC.
The workshop, which only has 20 slots available, features a morning and afternoon session, with breakfast and lunch provided. Participants can sign up for one, or both sessions. The morning session, beginning at 9:30am is targeted for novices or casual users of QuickBooks within organizations. The afternoon session, beginning at 1:00pm is more advanced and is perfect for finance directors or executive directors who want to learn even more about their financial software.
Registration for the workshop includes QuickBooks training, “The Essentials” Training Manual, “Beyond The Essentials” Training Manual, and 1 year of QuickBooks Nonprofit Tech Support. The value of this training package is $857.95, but with the support of the Donnelley Foundation and the SC Arts Commission, registration is only $40 per person for one session, or $60 per person for both sessions.
Arts organizations are encouraged to send their finance and executive director staff to learn how to effectively use their QuickBooks platform for the benefit of their patrons, accountants, staff, and regulators. Bookkeepers and accountants who finish the training can also receive credit for continuing education.
