Can I use Sola even though my organization has not signed up?
No. Only an organization can sign up to use Sola. They then give access to their staff members who want to use it. If you’d like your organization to sign up, let them know about Sola.

What’s the difference between a short-term and long-term user?
Short-term users are focused on raising money of a one-time event. They do not have recurring donors. Long-term users will have recurring support goals and will need to keep track of repeating donors. Based on the type you choose, your data will be displayed in a way that reflects these differences. Everything else-the training, the reporting, the planning- is all the same.
What if we have one accounting system that tracks donations and another that handles our expenses?
Most non-profits use two separate systems for donations and organizational accounting. We are able to securely import data from both systems to seamlessly display both donations and expenses for users.
