Having Always-Current Financial Data Is a Valuable Asset to a Performing Arts Non-Profit
One of the biggest challenges facing a nonprofit organization constantly in fund-raising mode is ensuring the availability of real-time financial information at hand.
"We need to be able to demonstrate, ‘This is our financial need,' " says Connie Silverman, controller of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, MO.
The music and theater center, which only opened last year, after being under construction for four years, uses Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 to provide up-to-date financial data. Silverman was at Convergence 2012 in Houston meeting with other users.
"I'm trying to avoid that phone call at 4 p.m. on a Friday" from a potential funding source seeking the last financial information.
