Description:

Maximize Your Organization2s Financial Independence and Your Financial Acumen as a Manager Hundreds of thousands of nonprofit organizations of all sizes exist today, each with a responsibility to its mission, its constituents, its employees, and its volunteers. It is no wonder, between competition from other organizations for contributions, retaining supporters and employees, and maintaining strong internal control systems in light of the present Sarbanes-Oxley environment-all while accomplishing a stated mission-that the financial management of a nonprofit organization is just as daunting as that of a for-profit corporation. Written by respected financial professionals from a managerial decision-making perspective for those on nonprofit boards or in day-to-day management positions with oversight responsibility for financial functions, Financial Management for Nonprofit Organizations expertly offers helpful advice on everything financial officers need to know, including: Managing an organization2s financial resources Establishing and revising financial policies Accounting, budgets, and financial reports Investing for the short and long term Controlling and managing risk With many real-world case studies, checklists, tables, and sample policies simplifying and illustrating financial concepts, Financial Management for Nonprofit Organizations: Policies and Practices supplies balanced and up-to-date guidelines in this readable and comprehensive guide.
