In today’s climate of constant regulatory changes, financial management can be challenging in any industry. Nonprofits face unique challenges from strict reporting and accountability requirements to cost containment strategies that just don’t apply to the for-profit sector.

The Nonprofit Fiscal Managers Association (NFMA) provides regular learning opportunities and tangible tools and strategies so you can stay up to date on nonprofit financial management practices and related legal and compliance issues.

Although this series is designed for CFOs and fiscal managers, it is open to any nonprofit leader who wants to learn more about best practices in financial management.
