Registration Opens for Make Dollars Make Sense 2016: Funding and Financial Management 101

Board Leadership Calgary is proud to organized the third annual Make Dollars Make Sense: Funding and Financial Management 101 Learning Event!

A burning question board members of non-profits face is “how will we fund our work?”  Often as an afterthought they ask “how will we manage that funding once we get it?”

Organizations need income in order to do their work.  But they also need to know how to properly manage this income once they have it, or risk losing it!  This is not just the job of the treasurer or bookkeeper or senior staff.  All Board members (in the case of non-profits) and leaders require a certain level of knowledge and skills in the area of funding and financial management in order to properly carry out their roles and responsibilities, and ensure the success of their organization.

In celebration of National Financial Literacy Month, Board Leadership Calgary puts on an event in November called Make Dollars Make Sense: Funding and Financial Management 101.  MDMS is a one-day learning event for current or potential Board members and staff of small non-profits, as well as members of community organizations and grassroots groups.  It will address questions related to funding and financial management, and show how important it is to learn about both!
