Event Description

Revenue Recognition for Nonprofits and the Changing Standards

Jessica Yoder, Assurance Principal, McDonald Jacobs
Jeffrey Lester, Assurance Manager, McDonald Jacobs

Nonprofits have a tough enough time already with raising revenue for the organization without having to account for it properly. Confusing accounting rules and requirements as well as donor or contract requirements further complicate how to record and recognize revenue in their financial statements. Attendees will learn to identify key elements of recognizing revenue specific to nonprofit organizations as well as how to become familiar with new changes in the industry. Attendees will have real-world examples and case studies to discover practical solutions to apply to their own organizations.

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
