Looking to keep books for a non-profit organization via an online accounting system. It should have basic accounting functions including the ability to add and track vendors and donors (customers?).

I prefer a secure online solution versus client only software to facilitate access to multiple people.

What's wrong with Quickbooks Online? Is there something specific you're looking for that they don't offer? –  x3ja Jul 5 '10 at 1:20
Personally I think Quickbooks overcharges for a lot of their products. I use their POS (which cost nearly $2,000) and can't add extra users without buying the latest version for the current station and their "upgrade" pricing is not discounted much. –  Josh Curren Jul 6 '10 at 16:25

I have a Xero personal account, which seems quite nice. The company-level features look pretty comprehensive. –  Mike Houston Jul 6 '10 at 14:33

inDinero recently launched in the US. See this Techcrunch post for more info.

While it looks interesting, I don't think its a full accounting package and probably can't replace Quickbooks online.
