Financial statements and disclosures provide a wealth of information about a nonprofit organization. Many analysts focus their attention on the “numbers” parts of the financial statements, but do not spend enough time reading the footnotes. Before you dive into analyzing the numbers it is important to understand the accounting principles used to prepare the financial statements. This workshop will also go more in depth than our introductory Financial Statements workshop. Participants will work in small groups to analyze 990s of non-profit organizations.
Lunch will be provided.
