This two-session series, facilitated by Doug Green of La Piana Consulting, provides tools for effective financial oversight for nonprofits. In this first interactive session, topics will include understanding what to look for in financial statements, establishing financial policies that can prevent problems before they arise, and identifying key financial performance indicators to measure strength and resilience. The session will include the introduction of a case study that will be considered in greater depth in Session 2.
