Feb 22nd: Training on “Financial Controls for Nonprofits”

Even the slightest of fraud events can be devastating to any nonprofit organization as a trusted steward of donor contributions and grant funds. Please join the Los Alamos Community Foundation for a special seminar geared towards nonprofit boards and staff that focuses on protecting the value of an organization’s reputation. Time will be spent examining real world examples of fraud, discussing lapses in financial management, and presenting simple steps that can be taken to protect funds from fraud in both the real and virtual worlds. Many nonprofit organizations have few or no professional staff, thus limiting their ability to implement extensive financial controls; but it is essential to have some basic financial policies and procedures in place.

Presenter Chris Daniels, CEO of The Family YMCA, has a well-developed background in nonprofit management that includes more than 18 years of financial management for several different nonprofits.

Registration is encouraged on a per organization basis, with a workshop fee of $50 per organization (up to three participants). Training is appropriate for staff, board members and volunteers. Individual registration is at the same rate ($50/session).
