Session Overview

We are looking for some help understanding the best way to track restricted funds, especially in Quickbooks. Currently it's sitting in the P&L, which is wreaking complete havoc for us to trying read the financials in an accurate way. This is a time-sensitive request. We have the info regarding restricted funds and expenses in separate spreadsheets, but need to know the best way to set things up.


Nonprofit Overview

Elemental Music celebrates music-making and builds community through exceptional youth education programs. We envision a community where youth are inspired and empowered through quality music education. Our core values are Community, Diversity and Inclusion, Equity, Excellence, and the Transformative Power of Music.

We believe that socioeconomic background and the racial wealth gap should not be barriers for developing musical skill and talent. Every child has great potential and should have access to high quality music education that allows them to realize what is possible. Through participation in music education programs, students can find a unique sense of belonging, affirming their human dignity and sense of self-worth. We believe that providing students with high-quality training, musically and technically, helps them best harness the power of music as a vehicle for self-expression and self-confidence.
