Welcome to Mango's Guide to Financial Management for NGOs

Thank you!!! I have been struggling with our financial management and controls and while we are able to keep an open and honest account of our financial transactions, it was not an efficient, well regulated, or well monitored system.

I cannot tell you how many times I wished I could find a financial system that was tailor-made for NGOs and that came with a guidebook that helps a non-financial expert understand the terminology, how the system actually works, and a step by step guide for getting the system set up.  Mango's Guide and free Accounting system is a real dream come true!
