About This Event

The Certificate in Nonprofit Financial Management will provide you with the basic skills and knowledge needed to establish and maintain strong financial management of your organization.

With a focus on best practices, these training sessions will strengthen your ability to make sound decisions that affect your nonprofit’s programs and operations. They will demystify financial jargon and teach you about financial record-keeping. Training material uses easily understood and relevant case examples as well as engaging, interactive explanations for financial terminology, assumptions and concepts.

Who should attend this series?

The series is for any nonprofit professional with little to no financial background who is seeking to understand or strengthen the basic knowledge and skills of nonprofit financial management or for professionals with basic for-profit financial experience who are looking to develop knowledge in the nuances between for profit and nonprofit financial management.

Experienced financial professionals with accounting background and experience are encouraged to consider one of the CFO Roundtable Sessions, offered once per quarter.

To earn the certificate, you must attend both this session, Introduction to Nonprofit Financial Management, and the other session in the Certificate program: Tools for Cash Management & Analysis on March 21, 2024. You must register for each of these sessions separately.

Introduction to Nonprofit Financial Management

Whether you are a CEO, COO, financial manager, development or program staff member, many leaders in the nonprofit sector are unprepared to manage, analyze, and present critical financial information about their programs and organizations, yet to run a successful organization, you must have a basic understanding of your nonprofit’s financial outlook and how to translate it. Funders and donors often judge us by our financials and our ability to communicate what the numbers mean.

During this half-day program, presenter Teresa Craig, CPA, will teach you the basics of good financial management and how to use financial information to communicate with others. This session provides financial instruction and confidence for non-financial staff members who have to deal with “the numbers” but lack an accounting or finance background.

This program will prepare you to:

  • Read and understand financial statements
  • Identify risks and trends
  • Ask the right questions based on understanding the numbers
  • Control the financial information that tells your story
  • Use financial information to direct and motivate staff and board members to achieve organizational goals

$288.00 Only $89 thanks to the support of our funders.

This event is being held IN-PERSON at our training room in Tampa, FL.

Registration closes at 11:55 p.m. Eastern on March 5, 2024.
