Financial Acumen for Non-Profits

Learn the unique financial requirements and accountabilities of nonprofit organizations

Overview Beyond their responsibilities for raising money, nonprofit organizations are accountable for how those funds are used to meet their organizational mission, and how they’re positioned to do so in the future. Therefore, nonprofits’ financial statements are different from those for organizations which are for-profit. The financial health of a nonprofit or foundation, for example, is important not only to the chief financial officer, but also for administrators, board members, directors, and key program staff.      This webinar focuses on the fundamentals of financial acumen for nonprofits, and will introduce you to the development and interpretation of typical nonprofit financial statements. You’ll explore complex finance and accounting concepts in terms that anyone involved in a nonprofit organization can understand—in order to better fulfill all managerial and fiduciary duties.    Attend this program and gain the knowledge and insights you need to help improve a nonprofit organization’s ongoing financial health into the future—and to meet your accountabilities for doing so.   About the Facilitator  William R. Kay, MBA , is an adjunct professor at the University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC), Bloch School of Management, and he teaches business classes at Johnson County Community College (JCCC) in Overland Park, Kansas. He is dedicated to helping both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations and the individuals who work for them enhance their competitiveness, productivity and performance.
