2017 “Best Practices” Series Announced!
Getting - and Keeping - Your Fiscal House in Order

Co-hosted by the NJ Historic Trust, NJ Historical Commission, and Friends of NJ Heritage, this two-part workshop series will give you the tools to evaluate your organization's current financial health and will present strategies to improve and sustain fiscal health in the future.

Both staff and volunteers are encouraged to attend, whether you have no financial background or have been working with numbers for years.

Nancy Hall of 501(c) Solutions will lead the workshops. Ms. Hall has over thirty years of experience in providing management and financial services for nonprofit organizations. Her diverse portfolio of clients includes both small and large scale organizations, providing financial and accounting oversight, and strategic planning and execution consulting services. She is adjunct faculty at Johns Hopkins University where she teaches graduate level courses in nonprofit management and finance.

Workshop: Budgeting Basics

In the book Alice in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat said, "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there." Budgets are the maps that get your organization on the right road to where you want to be in the future.

This workshop will:

  • Identify different types of budgets
  • Discuss philosophies of budgeting and how to reach consensus in the budgeting process
  • Provide tools such as worksheet formats, rules for estimating expenses, and options for presenting the budget to staff, boards, and funders
