Transforming Business Models and Managing Cash Flow

Tuesday, October 22, 2019
1:00 pm4:00 pm

Presenter: Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN)
Cost: $35 for MCN & NDANO Members with promo code/$59 for nonmembers

Join the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits as they host a half-day training focused on transforming your nonprofit financial management. These expert-led trainings are perfect for anyone looking to advance your nonprofit finances to a higher level.

Part 1: Transforming Business Models
This workshop is designed to illuminate the connection between your mission and your business model. You will learn about the four core components to a nonprofit business model: revenue mix, understanding the cost of effective programs, infrastructure, and capital structure. You will understand how all of these components come together to impact your organization’s health.

Part 2: Managing Cash Flow
While standard nonprofit financial reports – the budget, income statement, and balance sheet – provide important management information, these statements alone do not tell whether there is enough cash on hand to pay for an unexpected heating repair, to take on a new program opportunity, or even to cover payroll next month. For this, effective cash flow management is essential. This workshop will help you anticipate and prepare for the ebb and flow of cash coming in and out of your organization. You will learn how to navigate your nonprofit’s cash flow and how different types of income and expenses impact your finances.

This session is co-sponsored by the FM Area Foundation.
