The Program

The PNY Core: Financial Series is a set of perennial programs at Philanthropy New York that help funders understand how to assess organizational health through financial analysis. Designed for philanthropy professionals in any role, from trustee to staff, these interactive offerings help funders build their skills to analyze grantee financial documents. 

This session will focus on the IRS Form 990, which is used by funders as a tool to track and scrutinize the finances, governance, and accomplishments of grant applicants and recipients. The form creates a level playing field for an otherwise diverse sector.  What information can be gleaned from the form? What are the critical focus areas?

Who should attend?

Funders with less than two years of experience in the field – program-officers, CEOs, and other staff, as well as trustees. It is also recommended for experienced grantmakers seeking a refresher in the basic financial tools of grantmaking.

What will you learn?

Upon completing this session, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an ability to analyze an organization’s financial health through the 990
  • Analyze an organization’s 990 for potential red flags
  • Use the 990 to understand governance of the organization
  • Identify questions to raise with the grant applicant or grantee about their 990
