As an employee or volunteer for a nonprofit organization, you have a role in financial oversight: to ensure that all resources are used to accomplish the mission. This presentation will provide an easy-to-digest overview of the importance of sound budget practices, and keys to reading and understanding financial statements and audit reports. The material presented will be useful for volunteers, program staff as well as directors and board members.
Description of topics to be covered:
- What is budgeting and why do I care?
- Why do we have to be audited? I am a very honest person?
- How to read and understand a set of audited financial statements. This is not as boring as you think!
