Event Description

Title
Strategic Financial Management for Nonprofit Leaders

Presenters
Scott Schaffer, Principle – Public Interest Management Group

Strategic financial management is critical to nonprofit success and sustainability. It involves actively building, monitoring and adjusting the organization’s business model. Successful nonprofit leaders must get in front of the organization’s financial strengths, weaknesses, risks and opportunities, and keep financial health and sustainability in the scope. This session provides nonprofit leaders with an overview of key strategic financial management concepts, as well as practical methods for fulfilling this role within organizations. 

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Resource Development, Purpose and Strategy

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 Resource Development, Purpose and Strategy. For additional resources in these categories, visit: Resource Development, Purpose and Strategy.

About the Presenter

Scott Schaffer, Principle – Public Interest Management Group

Scott Schaffer, Principal of Public Interest Management Group, is an experienced nonprofit leader and consultant with a background in economics, finance and behavioral science. He is a four-time past CEO of regional, statewide and national nonprofits. He's directed growth, designed financial turnarounds and built high-performance organizations in the public health, environmental and housing fields.

At Philabundance, he led tenfold growth and pioneered a groundbreaking fresh food distribution system, later replicated nationally. At NatureBridge, he oversaw new campus development in Washington and Southern California, keys to a long-term growth strategy. At Common Ground, he guided a recession-era turnaround and a successful merger. He's also worked in planning and policy roles with United Way and the Massachusetts Medicaid program, and as a senior associate with La Piana Consulting. 

Scott's consulting practice links expertise in financial analysis and organizational development, and radiates from a core principle that social change requires passion and great ideas along with smart strategy and skillful execution. His work with a range of clients is an extension of this philosophy. He's played a key role in over twenty nonprofit mergers and restructuring projects, and launched social enterprises promoting affordable housing, technology adoption and environmental conservation. Scott has also developed a range of innovative business strategy methods, and delivers training workshops on strategic nonprofit management.

Scott's education includes the Harvard Kennedy School, Carnegie Mellon University, and Columbia Business School. His writing on organizational development, finance and public policy appears in his blog. Off the clock, he's a guitarist, runner, and frequent hiker in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
