Using Ledger CLI for Non-Profit Organizational Accounting

Non-profit organizations (NPOs), particularly 501(c)(3) charities in the USA, have their own specific accounting needs. These often differ from for-profit accounting needs. For example, for-profit-oriented systems often make problematic assumptions about the workflow of accounting tasks (often because NPOs rely primarily on donations, rather than fee-for-service or widget-selling income). Also, non-profit income is categorized differently than for-profit income, and the reporting requirements vary wildly from their for-profit equivalents.

This project is designed to provide some basic templates, tutorials, workflow documentation and scripts to handle accounting for an NPO. The primary example is a direct project (aka Model A) fiscal sponsor NPO.
