Goodwill Community Foundation® and Goodwill Industries of Eastern NC Gives Back to Boys and Girls Clubs with In-Kind Accounting Services

DURHAM, NC, March 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Goodwill Community Foundation® (GCF) lives out its mission of giving back by providing in-kind accounting services to Boys & Girls Clubs in eastern North Carolina. Since 2012, GCF has funded this service, which is provided by GIENC and helps with seven Boys & Girls Clubs, which serve over 45 locations.  

"GIENC and GCF have been a transformational partner for us," said Tanya Evans, Board Chair for the Boys & Girls Club of North Central North Carolina, which includes six counties. "As we've grown with multi-county contributions, it's been critical to understand our accounting better. As a nonprofit, people trust us with their resources, and GIENC helps account for and keep track of that for us, and that helps us keep that trust."

The real benefit of this service is more resources to provide afterschool programs and community outreach that has a direct and positive impact on students. Working with GIENC Accounting Services allows funds that would have otherwise been paid to financial services to go to mission-based programs. Plus, the program provides financial insight and experience to the Clubs that most would not have access to.

"GIENC helps with accounting services, from processing payroll to accounts payable and payments to vendors, to help with year-end external audits and tax forms. We then provide analysis of month-end financial statements," said Dan Hawley, Director of GIENC Accounting Services. "Our assistance likely saves each Club location around $30,000 - $65,000 in annual accounting services." 

"Boys & Girls Clubs are a specialty for Dan as he understands the national model and provides analysis and has our budget down to a science with a clear picture of expenses and how we can plan better and be more efficient," said Evans. "He is a pillar for us." 

The seven Boys & Girls Clubs that GCF provides accounting services for include: 

· Boys & Girls Club of Tar River Region

· Boys & Girls Clubs of Coastal Plain

· Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham & Orange Counties

· Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central North Carolina

· Boys & Girls Club of the Albemarle

· Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Carolina

· Brigade Boys & Girls Clubs
