We understand the unique challenges nonprofits face in staffing, funding, and regulatory requirements. SSNW and Microsoft are committed to bringing the best technology to charitable organizations. We offer software licensing discounts up to 70% as well as fixed price projects exclusively for non-profits, so you can plan accordingly. See our chart below to learn how D365 Business Central stacks up against QuickBooks for your organization.


Accounting Software for Nonprofits

The focus of many nonprofits is to give back to the community. Oftentimes, what draws people to this line of work is the need to help one another. What people don’t normally associate with nonprofit work is administrative things like paperwork, calculations, and tracking the organization’s funding and spending down to the penny. However, just like any other business, these functions are critical to the success of a nonprofit. Since it can be difficult to find someone internally to take on these types of things, we are always excited to work with nonprofits to make these essential tasks much easier by implementing a software solution.

Nonprofits and Microsoft Dynamics 365



Instead of doing manual accounting or hiring an expensive accounting firm, we recommend that nonprofits consider using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central for their accounting needs. This software has everything an organization needs to get organized from Accounts Receivable to Project management. Not only do we find that many users report that this ends up saving them more time, but it lets them focus on their organization’s mission. Why do we specifically recommend Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central for nonprofits? Here is a comprehensive breakdown of how the software stacks up against its strongest competitor.
