When it comes to financial statements, do you just glance and nod your head in approval? Join us to learn how to actually read financial statements in a friendly and non-judgmental environment!

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what the various reports are saying, how they relate to each other, how to know when something is wrong, and what questions to ask 
  • Feel comfortable reviewing and approving financials in board meetings

Description

Reading financial statements can sometimes be a challenge, even for people who have gone to school to learn how to understand financial statements! For the rest of us, it can be flat out intimidating.  

Join us for a fun class where we “pull back the curtain” and talk about how financial statements are prepared, what they tell you and what they don't, what to look for, and when to ask questions. This class is geared for board members and management, and anyone who wants to dig deeper into the numbers.

Level

Introductory

Audience

Executive Directors, Boards of Directors, or any nonprofit leaders that review financial statements
