Description

On top of everything else, you need to build a budget (what’s the purpose of a budget if I don’t have any money?), manage a budget, build in controls and oversight (wait – what does GAAP stand for, again?), create and follow financial policies (How in the world do I know how much money I actually have?) and support a treasurer and a finance committee (Ack!  It’s time for an audit!).

Most nonprofit executives did not arrive in their positions through a path of accounting and finance experience. Many bookkeepers have had limited experience with nonprofit best practices (yup – it’s different than for-profit). 

 

This workshop will give you some solid guidance on building a budget, managing expenses and income, and understanding the controls that will help you feel more confident as the caretaker of your organization's resources and assets.

Session Goals 

This session will provide participants with the following:

  • Strategies for budget development, including tips and tools for using your budget as a management tool
  • Receive an overview of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles
  • Learn the basics of segregation of duties
  • Receive samples of basic accounting policies for small to medium sized nonprofits
  • Identify all the intersections of financial protocols – including payroll and employee policies, conflict of interest policies, fundraising policies and grant writing
