Nonprofit leaders must know, own, and effectively articulate their organization’s financial story. By communicating this story well, leaders build trust and credibility, contextualize financial reports, connect finances to mission, and advocate for their organization’s needs. In this webinar, NFF will guide you through the process of crafting a compelling financial story for your organization with budgets, dashboards, financial statements, and other materials. NFF will also offer techniques for getting to know your various audiences, positioning your financial story for each of your audiences, and engaging your board and other stakeholders during times of crisis.
Outcomes: At the end of this session, participants will be able to know, own, and effectively articulate their organization’s financial story to build trust and credibility, contextualize financial reports, connect finances to mission, and advocate for their needs.
