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 picture 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. See different ways to present financial information to communicate your story and help stakeholders 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.

This session is geared for mid-large sized nonprofits that have dedicated finance staff and would be ideal for the person charged with presenting financial information to leadership teams, staff, and boards (e.g., fiscal managers, finance directors, chief financial officers). Anyone interested in understanding different methodologies for presenting financial information is welcome to join!

Learning Outcomes:

  • See concrete examples on different options for presenting financial information.
  • Learn about how different roles benefit from different presentation of financial information (management, board, funders, and donors).
  • Identify how to determine what financial information is most useful for your organization.

Please note that a recording of this webinar will be sent to registrants after the event.
