* This session assumes basic knowledge of financial management and reporting. If you do not already have experience in the basic terminology of nonprofit financials, please register for and attend the Financial Series: Intro to Financial Statements before these sessions. Due to the intensive nature of this session, it will not be offered via remote access.
Experienced grantmakers often use two financial documents to review potential and current grantees: financial statements and IRS Form 990. But how do the two documents differ and how can they best be used together to interpret the financial status of an organization?
Upon completing this session, participants will be able to:
- Recognize when to turn to the 990 vs. the financial statements for answers to questions about grantees
- Demonstrate an ability to analyze an organization’s financial health through the 990 and financial statements, from beginning to end
- Recognize why the financial statements and tax filings for public charities aren’t the same
- Identify potential risk areas revealed by each document and formulate follow-up questions for potential grantees
