Financial statements and disclosures provide a wealth of information about a nonprofit organization. The statements tell a story, but sometimes you have to do a little digging to unravel the tale. 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 discuss those concepts and how they can shed light on the meaning of the numbers.

Participants will have the tools necessary to tell their organization’s and program’s story in a narrative that will be compelling to funders.
