“The flexibility is huge for us...”

Just as Your Part-Time Controller is building a stronger nonprofit sector through outsourced controller and accounting functions, Tech Impact's Washington, D.C. office empowers nonprofits through technology, delivering outsourced sustainable IT solutions for organizations serving the common good. Based in the Dupont Circle area, Tech Impact’s 20 Washington, D.C. employees manage services and support projects for some 100 nonprofits in the nation’s capital, helping them to see technology as a resource and a tool rather than as a problem.

Executive Director Julie Chapman views technology as a way to help nonprofits run their operations more effectively, to stretch their dollars further, and to make a bigger difference in the community. Through such programs as “technology health checks” that offer tactical and strategic IT planning and assessments, analysis of cloud-based options, and comprehensive computer lab management, Tech Impact centralizes data, streamlines operations and builds the technological capacity of nonprofits of all sizes and mission areas. Annual Celebration of Technology awards recognize nonprofits’ most innovative ideas for using technology to achieve their missions.

When 501cTECH's part-time accountant left, they were referred to Your Part-Time Controller by Philadelphia-based Tech Impact – another YPTC client that they had worked with on several national initiatives. (In 2016 the two organizations merged.) “We immediately liked Your Part-Time Controller because it was more than just a single person,” says Chapman. “YPTC has a full staff, with people at different levels.”

In particular, Chapman appreciates the ability to order up YPTC’s services based on evolving conditions. “When our needs change we’re able to outsource different functions. The flexibility is huge for us: we’ve been able to grow with them, to expand and contract as we downsize, upsize and rightsize.”

Chapman also appreciates the stability of YPTC’s staff. “The majority of the people we started with are still there. And the quality of the people we’ve had is good. I never feel like they’re outsiders: I always feel like they have our interests at heart. I think they know our finances as well as I do. And I really like having an outside opinion.

“YPTC has a lot of integrity. They know what they’re doing. I really feel like they’re partners. It’s been a good relationship for us, and we’ve recommended them to a number of other organizations. I appreciate the extent to which they run a nice shop.”
