You now know what you can learn about grantees through the Form 990’s and Financial Statements. What more do you need from them to understand their financial situations? What’s useful to you and not too much to ask from grantees?
In this interactive wrap-up to the Financial Series, participants will step into the shoes of grantees, providing a new perspective on financial due diligence. Join us to explore what can be gleaned from internal financial reports, such as budgets, that funders so often request. Discuss how grantees prepare and use internal versus external financial statements, and how these documents provide funders with different financial insights (or not).
You’ll explore with peers how you can request complimentary rather than redundant financial information. We’ll even touch on what this might mean for your foundations financial due diligence processes.
Upon completing this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand the different types of information that can be gleaned from internal and external financial reports that grantees prepare.
- Know what questions to ask if internal and external financial reports don’t seem to match up.
- Identify ways to improve grant-making financial reporting requirements.
