Technical Assistance and Coaching

Complimentary Technical Assistance and Coaching

Chief Operations Officer Erin Belby, CPA

Most people start or join nonprofits because they care deeply about the mission; not because they love to file 990s and purchase Director’s and Officer’s Insurance.

If you’re in need of some help in sorting out the “business” side of nonprofit work, you are in luck as we are now offering complimentary – and confidential – technical assistance and coaching services to La Crosse County nonprofits.

Meet Erin, your new go-to gal for nonprofit help

Chief Operations Officer, Erin Belby, CPA, joined the LACF team in 2019, and with her brought 15 years of auditing, consulting, and accounting for all sorts of nonprofits – charitable organizations, cooperatives, and membership organizations.

She joined the foundation with the hopes of sharing her expertise with the broader charitable community in La Crosse. And LACF increased her hours to allow her time to help nonprofits. She understands that charitable organizations are where big ideas and incredible needs meet modest budgets and challenging compliance requirements.

At home, Erin spends time with her husband Colin, kids Dylan and Alden, and cats Butterbean, Fergus, and Gizmo
