I hope you enjoy our monthly newsletter! We try to provide you with valuable information and tools to help you succeed in position with your church or nonprofit organization.

Below are the free spreadsheets that we promised as our special thank you for signing up for our newsletter.

PLEASE NOTE: These are "free" spreadsheets! They are made for a very small organization that does not need very many income and expense accounts. Adding more accounts in the "auto populate" spreadsheets require a proficient knowledge of spreadsheets and a LOT of time!

If you need more income and expense accounts, look into an accounting software such as Aplos or QBO or my 5 fund spreadsheet in my Spreadsheet Package.

Please know that if you decide to use them...you are "on your own".    I work around 10 hours plus a day in my bookkeeping business, so if you write me and ask for help with these "free" spreadsheets, I cannot answer back and cannot help you set them up =( 

Here are the download links to the free spreadsheets:

See this video for set up and using the automatic accounting spreadsheet:  Excel Spreadsheet Tutorial

See this page for more detailed written instructions: (Automatic) Accounting Workbook Instructions

See this page for more details on customizing your spreadsheets: Tips to Customize Your Spreadsheets

See this page for instructions on setting up this spreadsheet: Instructions for Manual Spreadsheets

A wonderful reader, Lee Stang, took my automatic accounting workbook and made a very nice accounting workbook! He has kindly offered to let other church and nonprofit administrators have it free of charge. I don't have instructions for it...but it was created from my automatic accounting spreadsheet....so yo should be able to use the insructions above for it.

Note: If you have any trouble downloading or opening the file, please browse the faq page ...if you cannot find the solution to your problem there...you can use the priority contact form found at the bottom of the faq page and I will email the free spreadsheets to you

See ALL instructions for setting up ALL spreadsheets.

P.S. (Important)
Please note that you can unsubscribe from this newsletter at any time. It's real easy. Just click the Unsubscribe link that appears at the bottom of every newsletter or just reply to any newsletter and tell me that you want to unsubscribe and I'll take you off the list. It doesn't bother me or hurt my feelings :-)
Just please don't click the "THIS IS SPAM" button to stop receiving it. It's not SPAM. SPAM is something you never ask or sign up for. When you mark my newsletter email as SPAM or just ignore them... I get penalized and everyone on my list suffers.


The big email houses like AOL, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, will stop delivering my emails to everyone if enough people ignore them or click on the THIS IS SPAM button. I start to get a reputation that I'm sending out a bad or very boring email newsletter.  Now that would hurt my feelings :-)
Hopefully, you will like the newsletters and enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.
