Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits

Event Details

Wednesday, April 5, 2023
9:00am-1:00pm PT
Walla Walla, WA
Exact location, TBD

We each have our own experiences with finance that may stir up excitement, mixed feelings, or uneasiness. These feelings can shape how we approach our relationship to nonprofit finance. Approaching nonprofit finance in a welcoming way, the Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits workshop aims to help unlock your financial literacy. From key words and forms to understanding how everything fits together, you will increase your basic nonprofit finance knowledge.
The workshop will cover:
  1. Balance sheet
  2. Income statement
  3. IRS Form 990
  4. Giving
  5. Oversight

A light meal will be provided.

The most valuable thing was to review the basics and to allow me to get a feel for what I do know and what I don’t know. It was helpful to confirm that many of the things that I am currently doing are correct.

Please do not attend an in-person event if you feel sick or are showing symptoms known to be associated with COVID-19 or another infectious disease. We ask attendees who test positive within a week of the event to contact us so that we may notify other participants of a potential exposure.
