Advance Your Nonprofit: Solutions To Enhance Reporting for Your Organization
As nonprofits nationwide face declines in charitable contributions, even the smallest details can play a role in persuading a donor, maintaining qualified staff, and keeping your mission and operation afloat. Join us to discuss a few of our industry’s biggest topics – Form 990, Charity Navigator, and federal grants – and how mastering each one can take your organization to the next level.
MAKE THE MOST OF FORM 990 AND CHARITY NAVIGATOR
Just as a positive Yelp review can increase revenue for a restaurant, your Charity Navigator star rating can dramatically impact your finances. Studies suggest that when charities climb to the three- and four-star level, their donations jump, too – sometimes by as much as 12%. Fran Leahy of KraftCPAs will discuss the latest Form 990 requirements, the form’s impact on your Charity Navigator rating, and why shortcuts such as data manipulation might help now but hurt later.
BE A GOVERNMENT GRANT GURU
If your organization has benefited from a federally issued grant, you already know that the process involves multiple steps that are, at the very least, extensive. At worst, they can be exhausting. Ken Youngstead of KraftCPAs will discuss key steps and common mistakes of the post-award phase, as well as solutions to reporting, closeout, and single-audit issues.
