Training and documentation on how use the Financial Model in the future

We need an accountant / CPA who specializes in non profit in New York to help us to set up our accounts and get the Quickbooks online going.
We could also use help in filing 990EZ for 2021 when the time comes.

Strengthened internal capacity to collect and monitor the right financial data
Better understanding of actual program costs and other financial information necessary for making strategic and operating decisions, including more efficient revenue generation and better service/product pricing
