Fundraisers and financial professionals – oil and water?
Fundraisers and financial management staff work together to bring in and manage the resources that nonprofits need. Staff and board depend on them to raise money, safeguard those funds, report accurately to donors, leadership and the community and comply with all industry regulations.
How can we improve collaboration between these two teams and ensure that they work effectively and efficiently together?
Join Angela Beard, Director of the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at City University of Seattle, for a session that combines reflection and discussion with practical exercises to help you build or improve good working relationships between you and your finance team.
You will leave the workshop with:
1. An understanding of the different training, orientation and accountabilities of fundraising and finance professionals
2. Knowledge of financial management rules and terminology as they pertain to fundraising
3. Tips on how the two departments can work together to successfully steward the organization’s resources
