As a Board Member of Asesores Financieros Comunitarios I have been able to get additional visibility to the vast number of non-profit organizations that exist on the island. There are numerous organizations that provide excellent service to a specific population that go unnoticed. They come to us for help in keeping their organization with skilled and trained individuals not only to provide the service, but also to manage the organization.

Asesores Financieros es una excelente herramienta de apoyo, ayuda, sostén y fortaleza para las organizaciones sin fines de lucro. Nos ofrecen talleres en diferentes temas para el desarrollo y crecimiento de los empleados y Junta de Directores, al igual que el área administrativa.

También esta el programa de Asesores Financieros Comunitarios que asigna estudiantes para ofrecer servicios a las organizaciones.

Para nosotros esta experiencia fue única, con un joven inteligente, dinámico, responsable, simpático, amigable, servicial, humilde , con mucha disponibilidad y productivo. Logramos actualizar los libros de contabilidad, poner al día los informes a las agencias, actualizar los récords de vacaciones, inventario y especialmente apoyo en el área tecnológica. Todo esto en una ambiente cordial, de respeto y con mucha tranquilidad a pesar de la complejidad de trabajo. Colaboro voluntariamente cada semana. Nos acompaño en la planificación de nuestra actividad de recaudación de fondos "Por los Nuestros, Juntos Podemos". Excelente recurso con una extraordinario Mentor. Gracias.

Asesores Financieros Communitarios is a NPO s in Puerto Rico that helps others NPOs providing education, technical assistance and guidance in the Accounting, Finance and other administrative areas.
I am a CPA in a Big 4 Accounting firm and I started as volunteer over 6 years ago as an instructor for the courses in Accounting, Budget and Board of Directors responsibilities. In this capacity I was able to get to know the culture and the impact the organization has in the NP Sector. The years passed and I was invited to be part of the education commitee and member of the Board of Directors. I has been a fullfiling experience get to know the organization and the participants we serve. Soon I'll be retiring from the above mentioned roles but due to the great experience I have with the entity; I will continue to be permanent volunteer of the organization.

This is an excellent organization with a very particular mission, which is to provide capacity and long term viability to other non profits in Puerto Rico. It fosters economic development as it provides college students with hands on experience as they do professional work to nonprofits while being mentored by a seasoned professional. This helps them create ties with Puerto Rico, gets them involved in the workplace while contributing to the development of nonprofits that do not have the expertise and/or human resources to carry out more sophisticated accounting and related tasks.

El Centro de Ciencia y Tecnología del Caribe (C3Tec) participa del programa Asesores Fiancieros Universitarios. Esta experiencia ha sido excelente ya que el C3Tec necesita apoyo y recursos humanos en el área de Finanzas y Contabilidad. Esta contribución es vital para que nosotros continuemos trabajando con una sana administracion.

Además contribuimos en ofrecer una oportunidad en un espacio real de trabajo a la estudiante y ésta a su vez conoce lo que es el C3Tec y puede promoveer nuestros ofrecimientos entre sus familiares y amistades. Otro aspecto importante es la realación de alianzas entre dos organizaciones sin fines de lucro, la cual se fomenta en este Acuerdo .

AFC has given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge about non-profits. To know how they work and the importance of them. All employees are very friendly and know how to serve the public. The work environment is one of companionship and collaboration. It is an excellent example of a passionate work environment for what they do.

AFC helped us go from zero operational experience, to having a strong accountability process, accounting system and operational habits. When we began, we didn't even have someone who did our basic accounting. Now, we don't only have up to date books, but we also have audited financials for the past two years, a small but strong operational team, and have a strategic plan to grow for the next few years.
