Financial governance for NFP’s.

25 min

From cash records, asset registers through to balance sheets and profit/loss statements, do you feel in control of these compliance and financial requirements when it comes to your NFP organisation? Watch the Financial Governance for NFPs video to find out more about this important aspect of your organisation's governance.

Your organisation, be it a not for profit, club, community, social enterprise or charity, is important to you and the people your organisation was set up to help.

The financial management and governance of your organisation helps to achieve its purpose and to be sustainable now and into the future. It shows the board and management how the organisation is performing and helps them make decisions about how to allocate resources. It’s also necessary to comply with legislation.

We’ll help you learn about:

  • why financial governance is important.
  • what legislation or rules you may need to comply with.
  • what records need to be kept and why.
  • how to read financial statements and use these as management tools.

This video may be helpful for anyone involved, or considering getting involved, as a board member or in a financial management role, such as a treasurer, even in a volunteer position.
