Practical Nonprofit Operations Tips

I really like reading the Chronicle of Philanthropy's Give and Take blog a daily roundup of blogs about the nonprofit world, however I've noticed the folks who write Give and Take tend to write about general sector wide issues or topics that are hot at the moment. That's ok, and many of the posts are very interesting, however I also like reading blogs that provide practical tips and advice for running my nonprofit.

My Nonprofit Operations Preparations for 2007

2007 is fast approaching. Here are six specific nonprofit operations steps I take to prepare for each new year.

1. Create 2007 fiscal/vendor folders and put my 2005 fiscal/vendor folders in a file storage box to store. (I do not store my 2006 fiscal/vendor folders because I usually have to access those files periodically throughout the year.)

2. Put all my e-mail folders into a 2006 file and create new 2007 e-mail folders.

3. Verify that I have all my vendor/independent contractor's tax-id's or Social Security numbers so I can send them their 1099 forms in early 2007.
