Guidance and Best Practices
It is essential for nonprofit entities to understand the unique regulatory, economic, accounting, reporting, and auditing aspects in which they operate. BDO’s various guides and resources can help organization’s adapt to the ever changing landscape you face.
Calculate Your Indirect Cost Rate
This guide provides a framework for determining and calculating an overall indirect cost (IDC) rate for a US-based nonprofit organization. This rate would then be applied to grants from participating funders, rather than calculating indirect costs on a funder-by-funder or grant-by-grant basis. 
Become a Certified Nonprofit Accounting Professional (CNAP)
A nationally recognized certification program, CNAP teaches critical skills and best practices specific to nonprofit financial management. A CNAP designation certifies the expertise and commitment of nonprofit financial managers and accounting professionals and is available online and in-personthroughout the year.
