Mindy Barker to present Financial Literacy and Planning at Sept.19 Nonprofit Conference at UNF

Many nonprofits struggle with the financial piece of the nonprofit puzzle.  But, it is so important to the success of the nonprofit. To learn more about solve this part of the puzzle, join the SBDC at UNF for the 4th Annual Nonprofit Conference on Sept. 19 at the UNF Herbert University Center.  The following is information about one breakout session during the conference:

What is in your current financial toolbox? Financial management requires a number of tools and is unique for each organization.  Financial management of not-for profits is similar to that of for profit organizations.  But in the nonprofit sector, there is sometimes a tendency to move forward to address the mission of the nonprofit and a belief that financial support will follow. This philosophy can lead to frustration, being in the red and the worst case is closing the doors of the organization.  It is important leaders address the financial needs and make sure enablers are in place to apply financial discipline to the infrastructure. This presentation addresses: long term sustainability, general ledger structure, cash flow and ethics & compliance.
