Nonprofit Financial Management Webinars
NFF has designed a webinar curriculum for leaders in the nonprofit sector and those who are interested in deepening their understanding about the challenges and opportunities that organizations face as they navigate nonprofit finance.
Our 2016 webinar series are taught by some of our most experienced staff and offer valuable knowledge about strategic financial management in the nonprofit sector.
The sequences below build on one another and can be taken as a complete curriculum. Participants can also register for individual webinars from each sequence to customize knowledge-building and address specific business concerns.
Free Recording available for Navigating the Financial Challenges of Early Childhood Education
Earlier this fall, Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) released a comprehensive report about the key financial, business and systemic barriers to expanding access to early childhood education (ECE), as well as some of the actionable changes and recommendations for policymakers, funders and providers that we believe will help create a paradigm shift in favor of better outcomes for young children. On December 8th, NFF offered a free webinar to take a deeper look at how the ECE system is capitalized (and undercapitalized), and what we can do to address some of these systemic barriers in favor of better outcomes for children.
This one-hour webinar explored:
- How much it really costs to address the critical societal need of access to quality ECE programs
- What can policymakers, funders and providers can do to address the systemic mismatch between how capital flows into the ECE sector and the outcomes expected from those dollars
- How service providers can strengthen the underpinning of their organizations by employing sound financial planning and data-driven decision-making practices
