While both bookkeepers and financial coaches play crucial roles in managing an organization’s finances, they perform distinctly different functions. A bookkeeper is primarily responsible for recording and categorizing an organization’s financial transactions, and maintaining its financial records. They track income and expenses, process payroll, and prepare financial reports. They may also manage invoicing, accounts payable and receivable, and reconciling bank accounts, ensuring accuracy and compliance with financial regulations.
On the other hand, a financial coach typically takes a more strategic and advisory role. While they may not directly handle day-to-day transactions, they provide guidance and advice on financial planning and management. They assist in setting financial goals, improving financial literacy, creating and managing budgets, and making informed decisions about investing, debt management, and other financial matters. They aim to help the organization improve its financial health and achieve its financial goals, drawing on their understanding of financial principles, markets, and strategies. Their role involves more financial strategy and less transactional detail compared to a bookkeeper.
Many churches & non-profits need financial coaching in addition to bookkeeping support. We’d be glad to support you with financial coaching. Click below to learn more about financial coaching.
