Contracted Financial Services

501 Commons can provide ongoing contracted financial services connecting with you through online accounting software and by phone and email.

Our financial services encompass everything from traditional bookkeeping to higher, controller level services such as audit prep and preparing financial reports. Our staff members are dedicated and experienced; we pride ourselves on delivering high-quality results with a level of professionalism you would expect from a larger company. We partner with you to create and maintain financial systems that are just right for your organization.

Ongoing Bookkeeping Services

We are working almost exclusively remotely with our nonprofit partners at this time, and will continue to do so for the near future. 

How it Works

501 Commons provides bookkeeping staff members with nonprofit expertise, with one associate assigned to your organization. Bookkeeping services can be scheduled from a few hours twice-monthly, to a few hours several days each week, depending on your needs. We'll provide a secure file sharing site for your financial statements and other related documents. When you use 501 Commons for bookkeeping services, you get a defined and structured process without the need for you to reinvent the wheel.
Our rates are competitive for the high level of service and quality you receive. Contact Client Engagement Specialist Jenny Lundqvist at (206) 682-6704 ext.108 for more information, or fill out our Request for Assistance form.


Retired Executive Director Sue Eastgard discusses the benefits of working with a contracted 501 Commons bookkeeper in this video.

If your assigned associate is on vacation or otherwise out of the office, we have someone available to fill in without skipping a beat. Your financial services associate’s work is overseen by accountants with more than 10 years of experience.
