Every organization should have board or staff members that possess financial credentials and/or experience and are charged with the primary responsibility of reporting or managing the financial matters of the nonprofit.  However, board and staff members whose expertise is other than financial still need the ability to monitor and manage the financial condition of the organization.  This is an introductory, basic course covering important financial management and oversight principles and activities in every nonprofit organization.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to manage a range of budget and financial matters in relation to your fiscal year
  • Indicators of financial health as well as how to detect potential trouble spots
  • A basic understanding of nonprofit financial statements
  • Plain-language (non-accountant-speak) financial concepts, activities and procedures that anyone can understand

Enrollment fee: $29
