Workshop to focus on nonprofit budgeting, financial management

Western Carolina University’s Office of Professional Growth and Enrichment will be offering a workshop focusing on nonprofit budgeting and financial management from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at the university’s instructional site at Biltmore Park in Asheville.

The workshop is part of the Certified Nonprofit Professional Program, but also can be taken as standalone training.

Melissa Metcalf LeRoy, nonprofit management instructor and consultant, will serve as workshop instructor.

“In this workshop, you will learn about the concepts that build the foundation for understanding financial management for your nonprofit organization,” said LeRoy. “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.

The cost for the one-day workshop is $89. For more information and to register, visit
