Your mission is to build a better world. Ours is to help you succeed.

Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science has experienced the benefits of outsourcing their accounting to 501 Commons’ Financial Services. Nalanda Institute helps people manage stress and improve their well-being through courses that aim to bring more positivity into their lives. They needed accounting help and reached out to 501 Commons. Today, executive director Dan Donohue says they’re in a much better place with their books and financial controls: “We now have much greater visibility into the financials of our programs, which has helped us better allocate resources,” Dan says. “We also added a new accounts payable software recommended by 501 Commons which makes tracking vendor payments much easier.”
