We're an all volunteer charity and most of our charitable programs are in Covid struck India. The needs of our charitable partners in India are great right now and the charitable support from Canadians has been overwhelming for our medical and educational programs.
Canadians Sharing Locally and Globally requires volunteers to help with our rapidly expanding accounting requirements. We are looking for bookkeepers or accountants with some experience on certain software, daily operations and filing charity returns. We're using accounting software called Xero and a CRM called Insightly. We have worked with Sage Simply Accounting before. The volunteer requirement could be as light as phone support for guidance regarding software function to entering daily transactions and helping to integrate our softwares more efficiently.
Working knowledge of CRA’s requirements for charities working abroad is a huge assett.
