Presented by The Grantmaking School (TGS) at the Johnson Center
Most grantmakers are hired for their program knowledge and expertise. Yet it is impossible to separate the role of money from programmatic success. Excellence in grantmaking is not limited to program knowledge. It requires a comprehensive understanding of nonprofit organizations, including their financial statements, budgets, reserves, policies and processes for resource management. Financial issues impact programmatic results.
This course does not attempt to transform program officers into financial professionals. Instead, the intent is to provide grantmakers with the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct a thorough and effective analysis of organizational and programmatic financial information to improve funding decisions.
