Volunteer Accounting Finance Consultant for Kotor Kitties

Company: Taproot Foundation
Location: Anchorage
Posted on: December 6, 2019

Job Description:

volunteer support through Taproot Plus. Taproot Plus is an online platform that connects nonprofits to professionals seeking strong opportunities to volunteer their talent for good. All Taproot Plus projects are vetted and once Kotor Kitties selects a volunteer applicant, Taproot Plus will provide resources and support to help make the project a success. ************************************ About_This_Project If you would like to learn more about this organization and project, please follow the apply link to schedule a preliminary call with a representative of the organization. About_This_Organization The mission of Kotor Kitties is to help the homeless street animals of Montenegro lead healthier lives and to humanely reduce the homeless animal population through targeted spay/neuter surgery. In support of our Mission and to ensure its continued effectiveness, Kotor Kitties engages in public education campaigns, recruits volunteers, encourages community engagement and promotes kindness and compassion for the homeless animals. We also support and coordinate with other animal welfare groups and NGOs in Montenegro to share resources and avoid duplication of services. Accounting & Finance - QuickBooks setup and integration Kotor Kitties has purchased a desktop version of QuickBooks for Nonprofits. We would like to have someone set it up with our chart of accounts, and connect to PayPal, Facebook donations, our website payment system (currently being built) and our bank to import information and track donors. Once it is set up we believe we have someone with the ability to manage the books, since we are a small organization. Can you imagine a modern European country with a massive population of unwanted cats and dogs but not a single spay-neuter program to help address the problem? Neither could we! That's why we started Kotor Kitties: to stop the suffering we witnessed before it starts, through spaying and neutering the animals! Just over a year ago, 3 women agreed to raise money to spay 10 cats in Kotor, Montenegro, and "see what we can do". A year later Kotor Kitties is the first on-going sterilization program for the community animals of Montenegro (part of the former Yugoslavia)! Since our initial goal of 10 spays we have now spayed and neutered over 1000 cats, begun the country's first Trap-Neuter-Return project for cats, and convinced a Swiss NGO to begin work neutering Montenegro's thousands of street dogs! Kotor Kitties is an all-volunteer organization. The rapid growth meant we quickly outgrew our manual bookkeeping and desperately need to begin using a software system to track donations...from all over the globe, in a mix of currencies! We also need two of our volunteers to learn to use QuickBooks! We hope that can be part of the project, but it is not absolutely necessary. A CPA on our advisory board helped us evaluate our bookkeeping needs and budgetary reality. We purchased the desktop version of QuickBooks for NonProfits through Tech Soup. We have a fairly simple chart of accounts, which will vary slightly from year to year with different grant sources for special projects like website development or vaccine purchases. The bulk of our funds will come through individual donations made via Facebook, PayPal, and our website link. A few checks will be deposited directly to the bank. Our spending is almost all in the form of wire-transfers to a few veterinarians we work with in Montenegro, and bank/currency conversion fees related to that. So far our only US spending has been by volunteers who make "in-kind" donations of supplies we need. Two of our local volunteers in Seattle are willing to learn to use QuickBooks, so we will have a back-up person if our volunteer bookkeeper becomes unavailable. This project can be done remotely.
