* 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.
Learn how to analyze and evaluate nonprofit financial statements and know what questions to raise for further analysis. Walk through a set of sample financial statements, focusing on definitions and relationships of numbers. What are some “red flags” to consider? What’s changed since last year within the financial statements? The program will also offer some key ratio analyses to use when assessing the financial health of a nonprofit.
Upon completing this session, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate an ability to analyze an organization’s financial health through its audited financial statement
- Identify which notes to the financials are integral to your assessment of an organization
- Analyze an organization’s financial statements for potential red flags
- Apply ratios and formulas that will aid in the evaluation and comparison of nonprofit financials
- Identify what questions to raise with the grant applicant or grantee about their financials
