The financial management for non-profits, both large and small, can be complex. The challenge is often when the smaller organization is short on staff, relies on volunteers and is relatively new. Regardless of your size, it is still vitally important that your nonprofit has policies and practices in place that meet the standards for the Office of Management and Business if you intend to accept grants of any size as the awardee or the sub-award recipient.
The financial management of grants is as important as being awarded the grant. Without strong internal controls, accountability and financial policies and procedures- you won’t get funded again.
Join this session where industry expert Cyndi MacKenzie, GPC, will provide you with examples of policies and tips on how to write about your financial management in grant applications. With twelve years’ experience writing and managing grants, Cyndi will discuss ways to track and manage grants. She will also provide a list of grant management tools and software that might be of interest to larger organizations.
