Nonprofit Finance Fundamentals Part 2: Building Resilience for the Long Haul—2017 Six-Part Webinar Series 

Join NFF for an explanation of core financial management principles and strategies. Building on content from Nonprofit Finance Fundamentals Part 1, participants will learn how common business choices can be managed across leadership roles to inform program success and help you best advance your mission.

The 60-minute webinars described below are offered as a full financial management curriculum, or can be chosen a la carte for organizations seeking to address specific business challenges.

1. Beyond Compliance: Strategic Financial Management

April 18, 2017 at 3:00 PM Eastern/12:00 PM Pacific

Finance is much more than preparing an audit or IRS Form 990. This webinar looks beyond finance for compliance’s sake, covering how it should be integrated into organizational decision-making across all management facets including governance, fundraising, and strategic planning. Through case studies, interactive questions, and tools, NFF’s offers actionable ways for leaders to begin using financial health as a driver for organizational management.

2. Planning for Effective Capitalization

April 25, 2017 at 3:00 PM Eastern/12:00 PM Pacific

Well capitalized nonprofits address liquidity, adaptability, and durability, ensuring they have cash on hand to support operations and manage risk, separate funds to support major changes to business model or programming, and adequate resources to support long-term infrastructure upkeep and facilities. This webinar addresses the basics of capitalization and distinctions between the types of resources (“build” money vs. “buy” money) that can help organizations achieve their goals.

3. Cash Flow: What You Need to Know

May 2, 2017 at 3:00 PM Eastern/12:00 PM Pacific

Planning amidst uncertainty requires knowing where your organization stands financially. This webinar covers translating your budget into a clear, visual landscape of monthly cash in/cash out; best practices and missteps in cash-flow planning; how to identify low-cash months, and how cash-flow management connects to accessing credit.

4. Growth, Earned Income Ventures & Endowments

May 9, 2017 at 3:00 PM Eastern/12:00 PM Pacific

To lead through adaptation, nonprofit leaders must realistically assess new business opportunities with a clear-eyed view of their challenges. This webinar explores the conventional wisdom of many common business choices, helping nonprofit leaders to clearly assess the pros and cons of:

  • Growth and scaling 
  • Launching an earned income venture or social enterprise
  • Building an endowment

5. Facility Projects: Planning for Success

May 16, 2017 at 3:00 PM Eastern/12:00 PM Pacific

A common myth holds that nonprofit facility ownership is a stepping stone to financial stability. In fact, a poorly planned facility project can wreak havoc on an organization’s balance sheet and mission. This webinar examines the effects that real estate ownership can have on mission, programs, operations, fundraising, and financial health. Learn to assess your organization’s readiness to execute a well-planned facility project, including often-overlooked soft costs and cash flow.

6. Strategic Alliances, Collaborations & Mergers

May 23, 2017 at 3:00 PM Eastern/12:00 PM Pacific

No nonprofit is an island! All our work occurs within a broad network of funders, other nonprofits, community members, and other stakeholders. How can nonprofit leaders leverage this social capital to collaborate most effectively toward our common goals? This webinar discusses how nonprofits can recognize the conditions that contribute to successful collaborations, and when more formal partnerships, including mergers, might be warranted. Participants will gain an understanding of how these alliances can be positive, strategic decisions—and an incredibly powerful tool for organizations with compatible missions and services.
