* Financial Series: Intro to Financial Statements is a prerequisite for those who are new to assessing finances. The four-part Interpreting Financial Statements curriculum requires a basic understanding of both documents. Due to the intensive nature of this session, it will not be offered via remote access.
In this Primer to the Financial Series, participants will get a peek into how a grantee assembles the financial statements and the stories they tell. It is a broad overview for all newcomers who must work with nonprofit organizations’ financial statements to assess financial health.
Upon completing this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand the basic components of the financial management function
- Explain the difference between internal and external financial reporting
- Define the building blocks of financial statements: transactions and accounts (assets, liabilities, net assets, revenue and expenses)
- Explain the purpose of an audit and the audit process
- Define the four basic parts of an organization’s audited financial statements (balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement, and footnotes)
- Rachel DeMatteo, Manager, Your Part-Time Controller, LLC
- Eleanor (Ellie) Hume, Senior Manager, Your Part-Time Controller, LLC
Funders who are new to assessing nonprofit financial data for whom financial due diligence may be a component or desired component of the grantmaking process. It is also recommended for more experienced grantmakers seeking a refresher in the fundamentals to reviewing financial statements.
