Please join us for a special workshop hosted by EPIP-NY, ELNYA and YNPN-New York at the University Settlement about Budgeting as a Communications Tool with Jessi Prue from the Nonprofit Finance Fund!
Entrance is $10 for general entry and $5 for members of EPIP-NY, ELNYA, and YNPN-NYC. Please bring cash or check to the event as all fees will be handled at the door.
To make good decisions, nonprofit leaders and donors not only need accurate, up-to-date, and clear financial information, but also the ability to interpret and use this information to inform decision making. This workshop offers a crash course on interpreting financial statements, paying particular attention to the income statement and balance sheet, so that nonprofit leaders and donors can have an open and honest dialogue about an organization's true financial needs. Using real nonprofit examples, this session will demonstrate how the choices nonprofits make impact the organization’s financial health and how funding that is misaligned with business needs can threaten the viability of an organization. We will also review key budgeting terms and discuss how the budget can be used as an effective communication tool between nonprofits and their funders.
We hope to see you there! RSVP here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1T0XDJOXmcI8T-XPVm9oIWfRalb59Gi1hrIbjkB1us_8/viewform
