Build donor trust with proper financial systems

Get the workshop Documentation basics for nonprofits now

Develop a simple system to keep track of all your required documents so you can maintain donor trust with ease!

What are documents you need to keep when it comes to your expenses, income and operations? Why and for whom? How to organize these documents? Collecting, filing and storing documents is one of the things most people find boring. (And maybe it is). But if you are certain that you are collecting the documents you need and can have access to them at any time, you can sleep much better at night! No worries about tax checks, auditors, proposals and donor requests, discussions with staff … etc. This workshop is for you if you want to organize your documents effectively, ensuring they’re easily retrievable in the future. This will help you meet accountability and reporting requirements with ease. 

Workshop members receive a documentation checklist and an annotated sample of a staff file cover sheet.

''After these workshops, I am done with my initial steps that included manual formulation, Financial processes and systems. All done!''

''A future donor did an assessment on financials (accountability). This has given me insights in what to put in place to enable my organization to excel. Exactly the things addressed in these workshops. Suzanne, through what she is doing, has moved our organization many steps forward.''
