Unlocking Nonprofit Success Government Funding Key Prospects
A leading outsourced finance and accounting services firm providing financial management services to nonprofits, faced a challenge common in their sector: managing the risk of delinquent payments from less stable nonprofit clients. They needed a way to enhance their client selection process to focus on more durable nonprofits with stable funding sources.
The primary challenge the firm was identifying which nonprofits had reliable, long-term funding, particularly from government sources. The lack of comprehensive and accurate data led to an inefficient allocation of resources and increased financial risk from delinquent accounts.
