You cannot be a successful manager of a program or an organization without a command of the finances. Yet, too few nonprofit managers feel comfortable with their understanding of the numbers, let alone their ability to manage, organize and effectively communicate financial information.
Whether you’re a non-finance professional and/or new to financial responsibilities in your job, this class is designed to help you acquire the requisite skills that will enable you to understand and interpret your financial story for both internal and external audiences. You will leave this class with a deeper understanding of financial reports, the role they play and the stories they tell. You will understand how to read and interpret financial statements to inform strategic decision-making, appropriately separate financial duties and responsibilities to protect against fraud and misuse, and allocate expenses more accurately in order to truly reflect your programmatic needs and narrative.
Even with limited financial knowledge, you can learn to effectively manage your organization’s finances and use them to understand and communicate your organization’s story. This class is recommended for organizations that lack a full-time finance professional but are committed to best practices and transparency and for individuals who want to understand what the numbers are saying about their organization.
