This long-established congregation had been through several controllers in a short period of time and had no clear picture of its financial position.
JRH Consulting Group gave the congregation's business and accounting operations a complete overhaul and we assisted in finding a talented, seasoned accounting professional to run the department. Next, we analyzed the congregation's religious, educational, and communal programs, detailing revenues and expenses. We also established accounting procedures and controls, enabling each department to generate meaningful financial information so the congregation's senior management and leadership could make timely decisions. We created user-friendly documentation for all restricted funds — those donations earmarked for specific projects — to ensure that senior management, accounting and fundraising staff, and the Board could coordinate programs to support and carry out the intentions of the donors.
