Understanding the unique accounting principles and requirements that apply to nonprofits is critical for your mission to succeed.  This four module seminar series will introduce students to the basic accounting concepts relevant to nonprofit organizations.  Participants will be exposed to foundational accounting principles and their practical applications.  This will include understanding cash vs. accrual basis, the matching principle, fund accounting, functional allocations, and how to read and prepare financial statements. 

This workshop series is underwritten in part through the generous support of Citizens Business Bank.
