Keep Cincinnati Beautiful has programming in Environmental Education, Environmentally Based Arts, Great American Clean Up, Graffiti and Illegal Dumping Abatement, and Greenspace management.  We are also launching a new program called Vacant Lots Occupied, which reclaims vacant spaces for neighborhood use.  We are working through  some strategies and have come to the section on "codifying our secret sauce".  We would love some consulting on thinking about our core critical processes,

Keep Cincinnati Beautiful does not have a Finance Department.  We have a Bookkeeper who is one day a week and we use QuickBooks.  We have a contract Accountant who does monthly close, and our statements are audited by an independent CPA firm annually.  This works fairly well, and we have a decent understanding of our financial condition from month to month.
