MIP Database Modifications 
Maintaining database accuracy is a crucial part of keeping your nonprofit running smoothly.

When an organization needs to add a segment to their Chart of Accounts, change their fiscal year-end or consolidate databases, they will also need to change their record keeping procedures to keep their organization running smoothly.

Luckily database modifications can be made to MIP to retroactively apply changes or meet future requirements.

If you have questions or would like to discuss specific database modifications, please contact Adam Westgerdes at 260-423-2414 or
