Ed has over 30 years of experience providing audit, accounting and consulting and CFO services to a diverse group of nonprofit clients.
In 2001, Ed conceived and founded eCratchit, a revolutionary concept for web based bookkeeping and accounting services. eCratchit developed a proprietary web-portal software that allows eCratchit the ability to perform the daily bookkeeping functions for their clients and allows their clients complete access to accounting records and software on-line. In addition, the company provides setup and cleanup services; audit management oversight, as well as CFO and Controller consulting. The company currently has 25 employees and 150 clients located all over the country of which 50 are nonprofits.
eCratchit provides a unique nonprofit financial service. We became the Finance team for our clients and provide a turn-key finance solution. We are able to do this with experienced nonprofit staff, online tools and best of breed policies and procedures. We are nonprofit experts and have worked with hundreds over the past 30 years.
We understand the unique issues and circumstances that a nonprofit has to deal with. Limited resources and capital, onerous compliance requirements, State and Federal funding rules, we have dealt with it all. Nonprofits also deal with unique GAAP requirements and independent annual audits, we make sure processes to handle these issues are set up correctly and that the audit will process smoothly. We also know that nonprofits have very involved Board of Directors and work closely with Management and the Board to ensure that reporting, compliance and forecasting are all done timely and accurately and that there are no surprises when it comes to Finance.
In addition, at eCratchit we are Mission Driven. Our client’s mission becomes ours and we take great pride in helping our clients accomplish their important work. It is rare in business that accountants get to work everyday making a real difference and at eCratchit we get to do that. We believe that Strong Finance=Strong Mission.
