Project Details

What We Need
  • Setup of selected accounting software (e.g. Aplos, Araize)
  • Training and guidelines on how to manage system and generate basic reports
Additional Details

Hello! We are a year-old nonprofit in need of help choosing and setting up an accounting software and learning how to use this system and generate reports!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an enthusiastic staff liaison and commitment to our mission, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a fiscal sponsor with tracked payments, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,409 , allowing us to focus on getting overdose prevention supplies directly to people who can use them.

Fiscal transparency and accounting are so important, and we could use support as we grow these organizational muscles.

About The Org

New Jersey Harm Reduction Coalition
Our Mission

We promote harm reduction by distributing naloxone, fentanyl test strips, and other harm reduction supplies through peer-led programs; advocating for syringe access expansion and equitable drug policy reform; and organizing to build power among people directly harmed by overdose and the War on Drugs.

We work in coalition (which we define as "coming together for combined action") to advance the safety and dignity of people who use drugs, and to make evidence-based harm reduction public health resources widely available in New Jersey.
