Event Description

Different Ways to Present and Communicate Your Financial Statements

Erin Zollenkopf, CEO, Susan Matlack Jones & Associates

Financial statements help you understand the work of a nonprofit; they paint a story with numbers.  Additionally, they help you to learn where an organization may be struggling financially and to make informed decisions about how to allocate resources. 

Come join us to see different ways to present financial information to communicate your story and help users including the board, management, and funders understand the work and the financial picture of your organization.  We will be focusing on internal reporting and will look at different ways to tell your story including the use of financial statements, management reports, graphs, and narratives.

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Financial Oversight

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.

This event focuses on Financial Oversight. For additional resources in this category, visit: Financial Oversight
