Freebies for your church or nonprofit

Accounting Software

My first choice for church accounting software continues to be Alpos. It is the most user-friendly software I have found so far for churches and nonprofits with limited accounting skills.

However, realizing that some churches prefer desktop accounting software, read about a very special offer from Intuit and Techsoup...Nonprofit QuickBooks® Offer

Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft is donating its Office 365 to eligible nonprofits.

Office 365 includes anywhere access to the Office tools you know and love such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote plus professional email, web conferencing, file sharing, and more.

To see if your nonprofit organization may qualify for this free service, see this page: Microsoft Corporation Citizenship

The number one qualification is having obtained recognized charitable status in your respective country. In the US that would mean you had applied for and obtained recognition of tax exempt status from the IRS.

Eligible organizations must also operate on a not-for-profit basis and have a mission to benefit the local community such as providing relief to the poor. See the above link for more examples.

If you think you qualify,

  • go to the Office 365 for Nonprofits page
  • click the "Get started toward a donation with a FREE trial" link
  • click the Office 365 Enterprise E3 for Nonprofits FREE trial green button
  • set up your account

You should get an email from MS before your 30 day trial ends that will confirm or deny your organization's eligibility. If you do not receive that email, you can contact their customer support.

Payroll Forms

If you have employees, you need to have a completed W-4 form for each employee on file.

IRS Form W-4

For every non employee that you paid more than $600 in a year, you should have a completed W-9 on file.

IRS Form W-9

For the fun part of sending those employee's payroll taxes in, here is an Employer's Quarterly Report:

IRS Form 941

Share Some Free and Low Cost Resources You Use for Your Church and Nonprofit!

Times are tough! I have had to reduce and redo our church budget half a dozen times, so I am constantly looking for free and low cost resources for our church.

Do you have a free or low cost resource you use for your church or nonprofit? Could you take a moment to share it with us?
