Hack Club Finances

Hack Club is building a new kind of non-profit with total transparency. A core part of this goal is being transparent in how we spend our money.

Until January 2018, we used Ledger CLI, an open source CLI accounting tool, to maintain our books. As we began to spend an increasingly large amount of time managing our books, we decided to hire an accounting firm to take over. Unfortunately, accountants don't use open source CLI tools.

Right now (as of 2018-06), we're swamped wrapping up the school year and are working to figure out a strategy for making our new books transparent. We're planning to dump P&L reports and balance sheets monthly in this repo at some point in the near future.

For the time being, you're welcome to check out our books up until 2018 in main.ledger. If you have Docker on your machine, you can run ./bin/bash to be dropped into a Docker container's shell with ledger installed. You can then run all sorts of neat reports, like ledger -f main.ledger bal.

Have at it!
