Financial Analysis 101 is part of NCG's 2012 workshop series Financial Analysis For Grantmakers. Learn more >>
How can grantmakers help nonprofits generate more impact? By aligning grant dollars to the financial and business needs of nonprofit organizations, grantmakers can better support nonprofit financial sustainability and leverage their limited resources to achieve better and more results. It is critical that grantmakers have the ability to assess the financial health and condition of the organizations they are looking to support. This workshop, delivered by Nonprofit Finance Fund, provided tools to guide grantmakers in their financial assessments of grantees and familiarizes participants with fundamental principles of finance in the nonprofit sector.
This workshop is best suited to the needs of grantmakers for whom financial due diligence is a component (or desired component) of the grantmaking process; and who are either new to assessing nonprofit financial data or would like a refresher on some of the fundamental principles of finance in the nonprofit sector.
