Gusto’s workflows, automated payroll taxes, and resources can make your HR team feel much bigger. But if you need added support, our dedicated team is standing by.

All in one

Less time on payroll means more time accomplishing your mission.

Streamline your employees’ HR experience from their first day to their last with customizable job postings and automated applicant tracking. Self-service simplifies onboarding, and newly minted employees love being able to access their information, like paychecks, IRS tax forms, and benefits like health insurance. Did we mention we automatically file federal and local taxes with the IRS, and pay payroll taxes, FUTA taxes, and more?


Nonprofit payroll doesn’t have to be non-fun.

We designed Gusto’s payroll software with people in mind. That means employees and your human resources team. Gusto helps you keep track of fundraising, employees’ wages, paychecks, and more. Friendly touches like new hire welcome emails, birthday reminders, and tool integrations give your team a sprinkle of delight to keep them engaged. Goal tracking, reporting, and performance reviews increase retention and help create a great work environment.

HR expertise

Combine cloud-based technology with down-to-earth expertise.

Our software is reliable, frictionless, and we’re always updating our free online resources like the Help Center, Talk Shop Blog, and How-To Guides. Proactive compliance alerts and automated tax-filing keep your nonprofit organization safe from human errors. But humans are still at the core of our platform. That’s why we have a best-in-class support team of SHRM- and HRCI-certified experts ready to answer your questions.


Juggling payroll taxes for W-2s and 1099s? We can help.

Contractors self-onboard so they can get to work quickly, and they’ll appreciate getting our automatic alerts when you’ve sent their paycheck or direct deposit. Meanwhile, you can rest easy knowing that your local and federal income tax forms are automated, so you don’t have to worry about forgotten signatures, missing forms, or surprise local regulations. There are no extra fees to set up or file forms for contractors.

Integrations that make a difference.

Gusto connects directly with non-profit-focused tools that help with finance, donor management, operations, and more.
