What trends and metrics are most critical to understanding whether a nonprofit organization is prepared to pursue new opportunities and manage future risks? In this webinar, a financial expert from the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) will provide instruction on what to look for when reviewing nonprofit financials—imparting five steps for assessing financial health.
During the webinar, NFF will share its forthcoming online financial health assessment platform, developed in partnership with GuideStar. Drawing on IRS Form 990 data, the product reveals trends in nonprofits’ financial conditions over time, and allows users to view an organization’s financials side-by-side with up to five peer nonprofits.
Join us to discuss the benefits of using a standardized, comprehensive Form 990 analysis to assess nonprofit financial health and engage grantees in a conversation about their financial needs.


  • What questions you should ask your grantees to better understand their financial condition, past and present. 
  • How you can assess nonprofit financial health most effectively before making a funding decision.
  • An assessment tool designed to measure the financial health of nonprofits.
