Nonprofit Roundup: December 2016

Some people think accounting is boring. We say - not when you work with nonprofits! We’re proud of the nonprofit organizations we serve, and feel lucky to end every day knowing that we've helped an organization create good in the world.

2016 is coming to a close, and we’re so proud of all the great work our clients have done this year. As many nonprofits make their last year-end fundraising push, we’re keeping one eye on the future to see what 2017 has in store!

Nonprofit Roundup December 2016


It’s the season of giving - and for Palmer Land Trust, it’s also the season of Give! Palmer Land Trust is a nonprofit partner in the Give! campaign of southern Colorado, where every donation made through the Give! website gets donors special perks from local businesses. The Give! campaign helps introduce potential donors in the Pikes Peak region to smaller and lesser-known nonprofits. This year, Palmer Land Trust is also participating in The Whole Foods & Independent Young Donors Challenge. Supporters between the ages of 18 and 36 can help raise additional funds by making contributions of $10 or more. The 12 nonprofits that get the highest number of donations from this age group are eligible for an additional grant. But hurry! The campaign ends on December 31st! Learn more and donate here.
