GuideStar and Sage Intacct, a match made in heaven – Back in 1994, Los Angeles had an earthquake and Lillehammer hosted the winter Olympic games.  The Shawshank Redemption and Forrest Gump were showing in movie theaters and the average movie ticket price was $4.08.  1994 was also the year GuideStar was founded. 

Today the GuideStar website database provides information on 1.8 million IRS-recognized tax-exempt organizations.

View the video and see how the sample organization, Southside Community Clinic, puts the Sage Intacct GuideStar board book to work.  In this hypothetical example, the healthcare organization’s funding comes primarily from government grants.  But given the uncertainty of the healthcare landscape, they want to find a way to maintain services and programs in the event grants are delayed or cut back.

They seek to answer important questions such as:

  • What short-term options do we have to shift revenue from other sources?
  • Are there program revenues or fundraising campaigns we can employ to address the gaps?
  • How long will our reserves sustain us as we ramp up other revenue generating activities?

With Sage Intacct GuideStar board book, they can quickly view revenue broken out by source as well as cash, liquidity, and restricted and unrestricted funding and assets.  All of which contributes to the best decisions to ensure mission stability and success.
