What happens when you bring a storyteller and nonprofit accountant together to address nonprofit financial literacy? Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits (FUN) represents a departure from existing finance trainings. It expands what staff and board members know and can do relates nonprofit finance through BINGO cards, video shorts featuring a Jet City Improv actor, and supporting informational kits.
Through this interactive, hands-on workshop, we will work through the why, what, who, and how of nonprofit finance. We will dig deeper into two key reports – Balance Sheets and Income Statements – and then cover what board members need to know about IRS Form 990, the intersection of finance and fundraising, and oversight. Healthy finance practice can be habit-forming when people are working within their comfort zones, so we will discuss how to get your organization there. And no finance training is complete without a hearty game of BINGO!
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This workshop is aimed at nonprofit board members and nonprofit staff wanting to elevate financial knowledge within their organization. Teams are strongly encouraged.
