Portland

About this event

Jennifer Dale, CPA, Audit Manager
McDonald Jacobs, PC

Jessica Clark, CPA, Finance Director
New Avenues for Youth

Presentation & Continental Breakfast at 7:30
Networking at 9:00

Accurate cost reporting continues to be a challenge for many organizations, causing a range of problems for nonprofit managers, watchdogs, donors, governments, foundations, and auditors. Spending and allocations depend on grant and contract restrictions, strategic goals and your life cycle as an organization, and community perception. The media, donors, and lawmakers are also pressuring nonprofits to limit any non-program costs.

This session will help chief financial officers, Board officers, independent auditors, and others understand the importance of accurate cost reporting and what tools are available to achieve that end.

You’ll discover:

  • What best practices are used to allocate overhead costs to programs and what costs are legitimately program, administration, or fundraising
  • What documents you need to help track and allocate costs
  • Who is supposed to help code these costs in your organization
  • When costs should be allocated (throughout the year or at the end)
