Continental Breakfast & Networking at 8:30
Presentation at 9:00
Nonprofits confront a daunting paradox. Board members, donors, the IRS, and funders demand competent management, accurate tracking of services, and clear measurement of results. They would also like the nonprofits they support to spend as little as possible on management and infrastructure costs.
How do nonprofits get the information they need to evaluate their true overhead burden without raising fears of the twin demons of administrative and overhead costs? Even more challenging—how do they communicate this information to Boards, staff, and stakeholders.
Learn how your nonprofit can break through the confusion and present its financial plan for accomplishing its essential mission. Discussion topics will include:
- Defining administrative, fundraising, shared, indirect, and overhead costs
- Presenting administrative and fundraising costs strategically in budget proposals and financial reports
- Coping with restrictions and limitations on administrative/overhead costs in government and foundation funding
- Projecting and evaluating the return on investment in fundraising
