1. FastFund Online Nonprofit Fund Accounting
FastFund Online Nonprofit Fund Accounting is an all-in-one accounting, fundraising, and payroll software program. It was designed by nonprofit experts to meet the needs of nonprofit and small governmental agencies.
There are four plans to choose from. The all-inclusive Premium plan starts at $94 per month and includes fund accounting, fundraising, and payroll tools all in one program. If you don’t need the all-inclusive option, you can purchase just the plans that you need. The fund accounting plan and fundraising plans both start at $42 per month, and the payroll plan starts at $66 per month. There is no setup fee, you can cancel anytime, and technical support is included in all four plans.
Since 2009, Aplos has provided an accounting software solution nonprofit organizations can rely on to keep track of donors, contributions, and fundraising events.
Aplos is a cloud-based program, which makes it compatible with any computer or mobile device with an internet connection. We chose Aplos as the runner-up because it includes several features at a very affordable price, starting at $59 per month.
3. Intuit QuickBooks Desktop for Nonprofit
Intuit QuickBooks Desktop is one of the most widely used small business tools ever made, and the Nonprofit edition was created to meet the tracking and reporting needs of nonprofit organizations specifically.
There are three plans to choose from: The Pro Plus 2021, with a yearly payment of $199.99, the Premier Plus 2021 plan, with a yearly payment of $299.99, and the Enterprise Plan, which is $1,213 a year. The differences revolve around the number of reports users can run, number of users, and access to the latest features and updates.
Intuit QuickBooks is used by more small businesses than any other software and it is affordable.
4. Intuit QuickBooks Online
Unlike Aplos, Intuit QuickBooks Online was not specifically designed for nonprofit organizations but it can be customized for nonprofits. There are four pricing tiers ranging between $25 to $150 per month. We recommend QuickBooks Online Plus because it includes class and project tracking, which can be used to track funds. QuickBooks Online (QBO) Plus starts at $70 per month and includes unlimited telephone and chat support. QBO is cloud-based and will work on any device with an internet connection. We chose Intuit QuickBooks Online as the best for bookkeepers and accountants because nine out of 10 bookkeepers use Intuit QuickBooks Online to support their small business clients.
Breeze is an affordable, cloud-based software designed specifically for churches. The pricing structure is simple—one plan at $50 per month that includes all available features.

Many of their features are customized to meet the specific needs of houses of worship.
