Excellence in Financial Management Series

Telling Your Nonprofit’s Story With the Form 990 (In-person)

Carina Kleter

  • December 6, 2022
    9:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

What does your nonprofit’s story have to do with a tax return? A lot! In addition to sharing required financial information, the IRS Form 990 provides your organization with a free, valuable way to tell potential funders and donors about your mission, programs, accomplishments, reach and impact. Funders, donors and community leaders use the Form 990 to learn about nonprofits. Give yourself an advantage by learning how to use it effectively to tell your story.

After this course, you will understand the following:

  • Who is looking at your Form 990
  • Key components of the Form 990 you can use to promote your nonprofit
  • How to craft the messages you want to convey through the Form 990
  • Tips for reporting sensitive issues on your Form 990

Safety and Health Protocols for In-Person Classes

The safety and health of all visitors, students, trainers and staff is our top priority.

The Nonprofit Leadership Center is taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of guests and participants for all in-person training sessions:

  • We are following all federal health and safety guidelines, as well as guidance from state and local governments. Depending on the community spread of COVID-19, this may include protocols such as wearing face coverings and social distancing. Registrants will receive an email from NLC one week prior to each in-person training session that outlines specific protocols to expect on the event day.
  • We are using enhanced protocols and practices to keep our Training Room healthy and safe.
  • Training Room capacity is limited to ensure proper distancing.
  • Any person who is feeling unwell or suspects they have been exposed to contagious illness is asked to refrain from attending in-person training events. If you are not feeling well on the day of your training or are aware of exposure (within the previous 10 days) to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you cancel or reschedule your visit with us, whether or not you appear to be experiencing symptoms of illness. If you need to cancel for this reason, please notify us, and we will be happy to provide program credit equivalent to the registration fees already paid.

Please note: In-person training events are subject to be changed to virtual (via Zoom), rescheduled or canceled depending on current CDC guidelines and/or state and local government recommendations as the date of the training approaches. If such a change is required, registrants will be notified in advance.
