Good Times with Nonprofit Finance (February 1 + 3)
February 1 at 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
One event on February 3, 2022 at 12:00 PM
Most of us join the board or staff of a nonprofit for our love of the mission and drive to make an impact. Few of us would say, “I joined to provide fiscal oversight and great budgeting!” But like it or not, that is the position in which we often find ourselves; creating or approving next year’s budget, reviewing the financials for the next board meeting, or pulling together financials for a grant application or report.
In this two-part session (February 1+3), we will focus on increasing your nonprofit budgeting IQ as well as better equip you to competently fulfill your role of fiscal oversight through:
- Preparing a budget your board will understand or understanding the budget your staff put together
- Understanding the basics of how to read financial reports and key questions to ask
- Determining the right amount of operational reserves (accessible cash) for your organization
This course is designed for staff or board responsible for the financial management and reporting of the organization, as well as all board members to better understand and fulfill their financial oversight role. Participants will be required to get super excited about all aspects of finance and enjoy the heartwarming feeling of providing financial security to the organization they love!
Session leaders Brendan McDermott and Jim Augé are financial whizzes, veteran JH nonprofit board members, and triathlon training madmen.
