Here are some of the key characteristics:

Nonprofit organizations receive funding from a variety of sources, including grants, donations, and program fees. Fractional CFOs can help these organizations manage their funding sources effectively by developing cash flow projections, identifying potential funding gaps, and developing strategies to diversify funding sources.
Budgeting and forecasting

Fund accounting
Nonprofit organizations must use fund accounting to track the use of restricted funds and ensure that they are used appropriately. Fractional CFOs can help these organizations develop fund accounting systems that are efficient and accurate.
