Nonprofits benefit enormously when their boards (and other stakeholders) have the tools to ask the right questions about their financials, but if you're not a CPA, how do you know what questions to ask?

 

In this 2-hour workshop geared towards individuals without accounting backgrounds, we will

  • Examine the different kinds of financial reports a nonprofit needs to be able to meaningfully manage its money

  • Learn how to read and interpret a Profit & Loss and a Balance Sheet

  • Discuss the best methods for tracking and understanding your organization's financial health

  • Work through the concepts of deficits versus cash shortages, donor-restricted assets, and balanced budgeting

  • Develop an informed sense of inquiry and the ability to ask questions at multiple scales
