Over the last several months I have collaborated with Steve Zimmerman of Spectrum Nonprofit Services to provide a three part webinar series to California rape crisis centers concerning nonprofit finances. The individual webinars have focused on
- The critical importance of understanding financial leadership for the agency’s sustainability – Session 1 “Financial leadership during turbulent times”
- How to construct an agency budget – Session 2 “The Art and Science of Budgeting”
- Reporting agency financials in a comprehensive way that board members and staff can receive, understand, process and use the information effectively – Session 3 “Dashboard Driving” and Dashboard Driving templates
There are many nonprofit agencies across the country doing phenomenal work. What differentiates these agencies is their ability or inability to establish a solid financial foundation, remain viable and or grow no matter the economic landscape. CALCASA is committed to helping executive management and board members establish a financially healthy organization to serve survivors and the community by continuing to provide resources such as this financial webinar series. For more information regarding nonprofit agency finances, contact Kavin Black at (916) 44-2520 x305 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
