# 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](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiscal_sponsorship#Models_of_fiscal_sponsorship).
