Financially Strong Nonprofits | Tone at the Top Matters

August 4, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmCDT



Being a financially strong nonprofit is about more than the amount of cash in the bank.  Using a holistic approach, this series will explore common characteristics and best practices for sustainable financial health.

Tone at the Top Matters

Internal controls are often seen as primarily an accounting function and do not receive organization-wide attention.  Yet a strong control environment involving everyone in the organization has a significant impact on financial strength and mission achievement.

Class size is limited to the first 15 registrants.

Learning Objectives

  1. Analyze the internal control framework’s essential elements for setting the tone at the top and minimizing risks
  2. Evaluate optimal communication strategies emphasizing everyone’s role in building a strong internal control foundation
