Non-profit Nationwide


The most successful organizations make the best decisions on a consistent basis. This stands to reason, and yet most nonprofit leaders don't make the best decisions because they don't have the best fiscal information. John Carbonaro has 33 years of non-profit auditing experience and now teaches leaders the organizational principles needed to maximize their revenue streams. As an accountant himself, he also teaches bookkeepers how to prepare the accounting work based on the needs of the leaders. Met with exceptionally positive reviews in the current seminar format, Carbonaro CPAs is now working to turn both trainings into a course made to help any non-profit leader and bookkeeper nationwide maximize their bottom line.


To train non-profit leaders

By combining both the non-profit leader and bookkeeping seminar into one comprehensive course. The product will include video lessons, a workbook, and a reference book.
