    Finance for Non-Finance Managers

    Financial Management for the Non-Financial Executive

    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. And many bookkeepers have had limited experience with nonprofit best practices. (yup – it’s different from "for-profit"). 

    Designed for

    This workshop is appropriate and relevant for executives and board members or staff who manage finances and are seeking 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.
