Common Good VT is pleased to partner with North Carolina Center for Nonprofits. Please email [email protected] with questions about the event.

Money is the fuel that drives your organization forward. You need to understand the tools nonprofits use to track, manage, and oversee money if you are going to make the best decisions for your organization. 

Show Me the Money is designed to give board members and the people who work with them the knowledge and opportunity to practice what they need to strengthen their organization’s financial literacy. By the end of the session, you will be able to show your colleagues what you know about your organization’s financial story. 

Show Me the Money is an interactive learning event that covers these topics:

  • How to read a STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL POSITION (Balance Sheet) and STATEMENT OF ACTIVITIES (Income Statement)
  • How to plan for CASH FLOW over the course of a year
  • How to BUDGET to increase core mission support 
  • What DATA you should be paying most attention to
  • How to improve OVERSIGHT to reduce fraud and error

Show Me the Money is accessible to people new to nonprofit finance or comfortable talking about money. It is also helpful to financial experts looking for ways to communicate financial topics with a diversity of people. Participants will receive a workbook to help bring lessons back into the life of their organizations.
