Like you, I’m a big fan of QuickBooks Online because of the mobility and user interface. However, I have had a nonprofit client to switch from the Desktop version to the Online version of QuickBooks and they were not happy. This primary issue was that the reports in QBO were not as nice as the reports in the Nonprofit version of QuickBooks Desktop. Ultimately, they ended up switching back to QuickBooks Desktop.
In a nutshell, I recommend using the Nonprofit version of QuickBooks Desktop because it includes specific accounts used by non-profit organizations and custom reports that most non-profits use.
Best wishes for a prosperous 2018,
