During this workshop, participants will learn about the foundational concepts for
understanding nonprofit organization financial management including a comparison of
nonprofit and for-profit corporation characteristics and financial models, and the
fundamental relationship between organization mission and revenue generation. You
will learn why it's important for nonprofits to manage two bottom lines – the mission
and the money.
Participants will review a budget in relation to an organization's mission and strategic
goals, and learn the impact of mission on an organization's ability to attract resources,
and how mission-orientation affects the budgeting process.
This workshop is being offered as a standalone training or can be taken as part of the Certified Nonprofit Professional Program. For more information on the CNP program, email email@example.com or call 828-227-7397.
