Being part of a nonprofit organization provides many rewards, both individually and communally. However, too often a nonprofit organization’s lifespan is cut short because of finances, sometimes leaving questions of “why did this happen?” or “how did we get here?”


A nonprofit organization’s financial health depends on precise execution of the key components of an annual operating cycle. This series is an in-depth exploration of the major components.



It is imperative that a nonprofit organization’s books and records can be relied on as accurate and transparent to donors, lenders, and service based clients. That is accomplished by retaining an independent certified public accountant to perform an annual audit. In this session you will learn –

  • the difference between a compilation, review, and audit
  • how to prepare your nonprofit organization to be “audit ready”
  • the importance of internal controls
  • to read the various sections of an audit report and its accompanying management letter


IRS Form 990’S (6/3)

The Internal Revenue Service requires nonprofit organizations that meet certain criteria to file an annual information return. In this session you will learn –

  • the rules of who, when, and where to file
  • how to break down expenses into three functional areas
  • the new reporting rules and form changes for reporting year 2008
  • UBIT (Unrelated Business Income Tax) filing requirements



Because of corporate wrongdoings over the past several years, review of an organization’s internal controls has become an integral part of compliance reporting. Nonprofit organizations are included in this heightened scrutiny. In this session you will learn –

  • how internal controls can actually make your nonprofit organization stronger
  • the importance of segregation of duties
  • how to put together financial policies and procedures
  • the guidelines to follow pertaining to document destruction decisions


This series will leave you with a comprehensive grasp of how to develop your nonprofit organization’s financial health, thus supporting the life of your mission and allowing you to better facilitate the efforts of your volunteers and employees. Don’t lose sight of your mission by losing control of your finances! Enroll today!

TANO members are extended a 10% discount on the individual sessions ($40.50).

This session is part of our Financial Management Showcase Series.  It is one of four sessions that can be taken/purchased individually. Each session is  $45.  The other sessions in the series include:
6/3 990's
6/24 Internal Controls
