Nonprofit organizations represent one of the fastest-growing sectors of our economy. This fact makes it increasingly important for auditors, managers, and CPAs in public, private, and nonprofit firms to understand how nonprofits measure financial performance and how they differ from for-profit organizations. This course examines the core principles and practices of nonprofit accounting and summarizes the accounting requirements and practices of specific types of nonprofit organizations, including hospitals, colleges and universities, health and welfare organizations, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations that receive government assistance in the form of contracts, guaranties, grants, or assistance that may be subject to federal audit requirements. Other topics include the general characteristics and operational environment of nonprofit organizations; applying generally accepted standards and principles; and financial statements, audit guides, and recent changes in nonprofit accounting and reporting rules.
