How to Fund Your Nonprofit Workshop

Workshop Details:
How to Fund your Nonprofit, Sherry Quam Taylor, President of QuamTaylor LLC, will share how to confidently ask for the donations that fund your programs and mission every year. She’ll share the step-by-step path to grow your organization’s funding. And she’ll also share the things that might be preventing revenue growth and keeping larger donors from giving. You’ll walk away with strategies you can start to use immediately to help you get larger donations.  


  • Create a step-by-step path to secure the donations you need to fund your nonprofit’s mission in a way that works and doesn’t have that confrontational feeling that sadly often comes with fundraising.
  • Learn the things you don’t even know you’re doing that might be making it harder for donors to give to you. 
  • Learn how to lead donors on a connected journey in a way that makes fundraising feel comfortable – and you just might actually like it!

Reading Financial Statements

March 20, 2019 — 9:00 - Noon

Presented by Timothy J. Gavin, CPA, Senior Audit Manager, John Kasperek, Co., Inc.




Financial statements can be confusing and hard to read, and yet they provide some of the most valuable

information in assessing the financial health of an organization. With so much information that is

presented, it can be hard to separate what matters to you from what doesn’t. This session will

demonstrate how to interpret the numbers and notes in a standard financial report and show how to best use the information to understand an organization. Whether you’re a manager, board member, or other stakeholder, making sense of a financial report is key in making informed decisions.



·         Understand the basics of financial report structure.

·         Read and interpret the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows.

·         Analyze the note disclosure.

·         Identify the information most important in analysis and decision-making.
