From the Back Cover

Completely revised and expanded edition of the nonprofit industry's bestselling finance and accounting standard

The accounting environment has changed dramatically over the past ten years, especially in the nonprofit sector. Filled with authoritative advice on the financial reporting, accounting, and control situations unique to not-for-profit organizations, this new updated Eighth Edition of Financial and Accounting Guide for Not-for-Profit Organizations addresses the many changes that have recently affected the finance and accounting practices of the nonprofit sector, with a focus on fair value accounting.

Representing the collaborative efforts of many expert PricewaterhouseCoopers professionals, Financial and Accounting Guide for Not-for-Profit Organizations presents the accounting and reporting guidelines for different types of nonprofits, complete guidance on tax and compliance reporting requirements, illustrated explanations of various acceptable financial statements, a how-to section on setting up and keeping the books with step-by-step procedures and forms, and commentary on computers and accounting software.

Highlighting organizations that have fully integrated "net asset" accounting into their financial reporting, this completely revised and streamlined Eighth Edition has been updated to include:

  • The latest updates on regulatory reporting and disclosure changes

  • The introduction of fair value accounting, which affects the ways in which investments, contributions receivable, and split interest agreements are viewed and valued

  • Completely revamped and revised AICPA accounting and audit guidelines for nonprofit organizations

  • Many new topics, including microfinance and expanded disclosure on gifts-in-kind accounting, valuation, and reporting

  • A new chapter on the municipal bond market

  • FASB Codification and how to find accounting literature

  • A new appendix addressing the convergence of IFRS with U.S. GAAP

Long recognized as the industry-standard reference on not-for-profit finance and accounting, Financial and Accounting Guide for Not-for-Profit Organizations is a must-have for nonprofit accountants and financial managers, nonprofit executives and directors, boards of directors/trustees, and CPAs for nonprofit organizations.

As a celebratory bonus, when you purchase this print version, you will also receive a free e-book download of Financial and Accounting Guide for Not-for-Profit Organizations, Eighth Edition. For details, see the inside back cover of this book.

By Ciaran A. Benson on June 8, 2012
Format: Hardcover
I'm a software engineer and have no idea about accounting principles or fiscal responsibilities, so when I was nominated and elected to serve on the board of my community center I was lost when the budgets started coming out.

A friend gifted me this book (I had no idea how much it cost!) and it is so much better than I would have ever expected that I have been reading it from cover to cover. Even though the focus is on the finances, every page I turn reveals some new aspect of nonprofit life that makes everything I'm doing on the board both more meaningful and effective.

I had expected a reference manual, but this reads much more like a well crafted college-level text book. It provides the context for the information, then the information - so nearly everything I'm reading is directly applicable to what I'm doing for the nonprofit.

I've even found myself giggling with delight as I read through this (guaranteed to get you weird looks at the coffee shop).

After just one week with this book I now have a MUCH better grasp of the nefarious and fiddly details of why some of the boards past decisions were made, and why we should make them again in the future.

This book is to finances for nonprofits as Larry Wall's Introduction To Perl was to, well, PERL.

It was not what I expected. The book is overloaded with information. There were no pictures or diagrams to help out. Everything in boring scholarly language. I hope someone will write more textbooks for non-profit organizations so that people can enjoy reading and actually understand it in plain words.
