Basics of Financial Literacy for Boards

One of the foremost responsibilities of a nonprofit organization is financial management and oversight. Active oversight is essential to ensuring the organization’s financial sustainability, as well as proper stewardship of the organization’s assets and resources. This important duty—the duty of financial oversight—encompasses an array of responsibilities and requires a foundation in financial literacy.

Join Carolyn Burnett, CNE Board Member and Senior Business Banking Relationship Manager and Vice President at Wells Fargo, for this interactive workshop is to develop a better understanding of the financial terminology, financial statements, and how financial statements tell a story about an organization.

This session is designed for board members, executive directors, and other professionals who are interested in learning more about nonprofit finance. We ask that all groups bring financial statements from their home organization to use in the activities. (This information will not be shared.)

This training is part of CNE’s Finance Academy developed in partnership with CFA Institute.
