A two-day accounting seminar focused on using QuickBooks as a financial management tool for non-profit organizations is planned to be held at the Fairmont State Center for Workforce Education in April.

"QuickBooks: Premier Nonprofit Edition 2005" provides the customization non-profits need to streamline day-to-day activities, as well as the reports and forms they most commonly use. Non-profits have unique financial tasks such as handling donations and grants, non-profit taxes and fundraising. This version helps them manage all their finances easily and accurately. The program works well for:
Charities
Arts
Religious organizations
Educational institutions
Human services
Any other tax exempt entity.

This two-part QuickBooks workshop series is scheduled for April 11 and 12 from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. at the FSC&TC Regional SBDC, 320 Adams St., Fairmont. For more information, call (304) 367-4920.
