Nonprofit Finance for Non-Finance People (Dearborn County, Indiana)

Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019
9 a.m.-noon
Pre-registration at 8:30 a.m.

*NEW LOCATION: One of our most requested annual classes is now being offered off-site for our Southeastern Indiana and Southwestern Ohio community partners. Join Julia Kyser as she covers the basics of nonprofit finance in a new location: Ivy Tech Community College RIVERFRONT Campus in Lawrenceburg, Indiana*

Many nonprofit executives and board members rise through the ranks from direct service providers or other outside industries and have little or no financial or accounting training and are now expected to prepare, manage or review financial statements, budgets and grant reports. Even those coming from business management typically do not have training in the unique aspects of nonprofit financials and accounting. 

This class covers the basics of nonprofit finances, including:

  • What it means to be a nonprofit, including formation and tax-filing responsibilities.
  • General accounting policies and terms such as basics of accounting, types of financial statements and financial categories.
  • Reading nonprofit financial statements.
  • Nonprofit accounting rules including determining if income is a contribution or exchange transaction, and contribution types such as unrestricted, restricted, conditional, pledges, and in-kind.
  • Basics of budget preparation with sample worksheets.
  • Importance of internal controls.
  • Need for policies and procedures manuals.

Nonprofit Rate: Costs associated with this class are fully subsidized by Interact for Health for nonprofit agencies. There is no charge to attend this class.
Market Rate (applies to for-profit agencies): $200 per person
