Event description

Description

Mid-America Arts Alliance is proud to present Nonprofit Accounting (everything you need to know). Join us Friday, January 18th at 9am at The Hines Center in Downtown Houston.

Who should attend?

This workshop is for all arts organization staff looking to improve their understanding of the basic concepts of nonprofit finance and accounting. Participants may be newly in a finance role in their organization, or be responsible for overseeing the financial function of the organization without a professional background in nonprofit finance.

About the workshop

The accounting and financial aspects of running a nonprofit can be intimidating. But it can’t be ignored. If a mission is to be successful, there has to be an understanding of the finances. This workshop will explain the basics of nonprofit accounting, and give practical suggestions, in a non-condescending manner, of how your small organization can operate best practices, even with limited staff. We’ll discuss:

  • Ready for accounting software?
  • QuickBooks: desktop or online?
  • Basic financial statements
  • Tracking restricted grants
  • Making a budget
  • Internal controls for even small orgs
  • Board duties
  • Employees versus Contractors—careful!
  • Payroll: processing, taxes & reporting
  • Form 990s
  • Federal, state & local compliance

And any other areas of concern!

THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED AND SEATS ARE LIMITED!

Parking at the Hines Center
