Event Details

This decade is proving to be a chaotic environment to run an organization. How can we work toward maintaining and improving financial health while so many variables are unknown or changing?

This two-part workshop guides nonprofit leaders toward a deeper understanding of financial strategy and how to implement it in your organization.

Session 1 focuses on defining the elements of financial strategy, standards and metrics of financial health, and the essence of financial leadership: telling stories through data and building alignment of various stakeholders behind a plan. We’ll also explore the root causes of common financial problems and the concept of managing risk.

Session 2 presents a conceptual framework for the nonprofit business model, which we will apply to a case study. We’ll also explore concepts of cost analysis, return on investment and emerging human resources issues, which are increasingly central to nonprofits’ financial strategies.
