Maria Ramos Underwood’s Monday Session:

Liabilities, Income Statements, Cash Flow…Oh My! Getting comfortable with basic budgets and financial statements

Nonprofit staff need a good understanding of finances and budgeting to effectively secure, track and utilize financial resources. Beyond the accounting department, senior staff, program staff and fundraisers can greatly benefit from having the acumen to manage and articulate your nonprofit organization’s finances. This session, led by La Clinica colleagues Jill Borovansky, Chief Financial Officer, and Maria Ramos Underwood, Chief Development Officer, will help participants build their skills in preparing an effective, understandable budget, interpreting financial statements and using them to report budget progress, and handling a re-budgeting process. They’ll also help you think through what to consider for long-term budget planning and how budgeting and financial reporting can impact fundraising.
