May 5, 1-5 pm, Getting Started with Information Outreach in Minority Communities (Free)
This interactive class will provide a background in cultural competence and outreach skills for individuals seeking to begin outreach efforts in their communities, particularly to undeserved and minority populations. Topics to be covered include locating community demographics, the importance of developing relationships, the basics of building and developing community-based partnerships, recognition and acceptance of cultural differences, and the importance of cultural competency. Some basic concepts of program planning and evaluation within a culturally diverse environment will be covered.
May 8, 1-4 pm, Financial Management Basics ($45/$70 per person)
Financial Management Basics will ground you in the financial aspects of the nonprofit organization. We’ll start with a few definitions, to be sure we’re all on the same page, and continue by examining reports that might be helpful in telling the financial story of your organization. We’ll talk about the skills needed in the accounting area, and even discuss audits and budgets briefly. Come prepared for an overview of this important area of focus!
May 19, 1-4pm, How to Use Social Media Tools for Nonprofit Marketing Part 2 ($45/$70 per person)
June 3, 1-4 pm, Financial Management- Record Keeping ($45/$70 per person)
There are just some basics to keeping all the detailed documentation to support your financial transactions – so, what are they? How do we keep them easily accessible and yet, not overwhelm our storage capacity? And how long do we keep them? We’ll look at the answers to these questions and talk briefly about the differences between how to track information for some of our funders and how to present the same information in a format easily understood by our board members. Keeping records and presenting the story of our organization in numbers that speaks to the reader – that’s a tall order but we can do it!
June 19, 1-4 pm, Financial Management- Internal Controls ($45/$70 per person)
Over and over again we see stories in the news about nonprofit fraud and embezzlement – a pastor at a church in Moore found out her business manager had embezzled $140,000. The state-wide CASA made the news with a huge embezzlement several years ago and a county CASA just this spring. Some amounts have been large – some small - but all are devastating to the organization, the community and the public served. How do we prevent financial fraud – what processes ought to be in place for even the smallest organization? We’ll talk about this questions and look at suggestions to strengthening your internal controls to reduce the risk that your organization will make the front page of the paper for such sad news.
