Understanding Nonprofit Financials

Many nonprofit staff and board members assume leadership positions after serving in direct service roles and often do not have in-depth fiscal management backgrounds. This session is designed just for these leaders.

This workshop will focus on strengthening your capacity to read and interpret nonprofit financial statements to allow you to clearly understand the organization's fiscal status and strategize for the future. The workshop will also focus on the implementation of ASU 2016-14 Presentation of Financial Statements of Not-For-Profit Entities which is now effective and represents the most significant changes to not-for-profit financial reporting in over 20 years.  

Topics covered include:

  • Balance sheet vs. income statement
  • Revised net asset classifications
  • Presentation of expenses
  • Liquidity and availability of resources disclosures
  • Glossary of financial terms you need to know, and
  • Board responsibilities vs. management responsibilities
