This training is designed to make you more comfortable with nonprofit finance. We’ll walk through nonprofit financial reports including the statement of activities (income statement) and statement of financial position (balance sheet). You will gain an understanding of nonprofit finance terminology, accounting rules, roles and responsibilities, and procedures and policies. This workshop is right for you if you are new to the nonprofit sector, nonprofit finance, or your position as staff or board member.

Session 3 of 4: Non-Profit Bootcamp | Budgeting & Fundraising

Budgets are the foundation of nonprofit finance and are vital to your organization’s strategic planning and management. Budgeting can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Learn to use budgeting as another tool for you to tell the story of your organization’s plans, priorities, and aspirations. A "best practices" budgeting process will also highlight ways to engage your board as well as staff across the organization.

Session 4 of 4: Non-Profit Bootcamp | Board Duty & Management

A nonprofit’s board and the staff need to be collaborative partners to achieve the mission of the organization. However, there are times when roles and responsibilities become blurred. Join us as we clarify where governance stops and management begins.
