Ola Saad, Friends In Deed

Nonprofits that have a clear picture of where the money is, where it’s going and where it’s needed are better able to focus on what matters most.

NEW works alongside organizations to build financial resilience, whether that means support for starting up, guidance through a tough transition or a smarter way to manage donations and payroll.  

“Some nonprofit founders are terrified by numbers—and that’s OK! You don’t have to be good at everything.

NEW works behind the scenes to help you develop a shared logic for your financials, so that you can tell the story you need to tell.”

Allison Morris, NEW Director of Financial Services

We had a few phases to go through before becoming a full-time store, and NEW was awesome in getting us to that place. Relying on their bookkeeping lets us focus our volunteer time on what we know: marketing, promotion and getting more farmers to sell in our store.
