CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

  • BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

An Accounting information system is generally a computer based method for tracking accounting actually in conjunction information technology source. The resulting statistical reports can be used internally by management or externally by other interested parties.

A non-profit making organization also known as non-business entity, is an organization that uses its surplus revenue to further its purpose or mission, rather than distributing its surplus names to organization’s director (or equivalent) as profit or dividends, this is known as the distribution constraint. The decision to adopt non-profit legal structure is one that will offer have taxation implication.

The non-profit landscape is highly varied, although many people have come to associate NDM’s with charitable organization, although charities do comprise an often high profit or visible aspect of the sector. There are many types of non-profit making organization. Overall they tend to be either member saving or community serving. Member serving organization include mutual societies co-operatives, trade union, credit union, industry association, sport club etc. that benefit a particular group of people typically, community serving organization in general either globally and locally.

However, non-governmental organization engage in various aspect of developments work. This include all NGO’s from the local level, through the international level and management. Also among development, NGO’s are advocacy, where primary purpose relate more to policy actions, actions of development agencies and public opinion. The dividing line between these two classes of NGO’s as not firm especially with many operational NGO’s becoming involved in advocacy initiatives. Examples of NGO’s in Akwa Ibom State are club association, Religious organization and charitable organization (like BBBwise Giving Alliance, Motherless Home.). Therefore, the capacities of NGO’s to participate on national planning process must be considered.

  • STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The non-profit organizations have some challenges which are growing income. In that raising funds and increasing income is one of the biggest challenges for the sector as a whole. There is hardly organization which does not want to grow its income. In other words, raising is to develop income streams which do not suffer from the fallacy of composition of development economist call it. Secondly, the difficult charity organization have in growing is probably a number of factor, they can less afford to take risks because they don’t have the brand name that persuade the  people to give. The trustees probably are less comforted with the type of professional fund raising that will raise income. Most sources of funding organization are for restricted income. Lastly, the public know very little about how modern cities work, if there is a striking feature of our public awareness tracking for charities (we measure what the public think for around 50 charities).It is that the public have very little ideas who ism paid and who is unpaid in charities, while they think that volunteers are unpaid, they are more likely to think that trustee are paid than fund raisers.

therefore, donations are used to fund the non-profit  programs today, rather than for we down  the road.
