Launching this MayFundamentals of Finance with Jen Hudson

Not all nonprofit leaders need to be finance experts, but we all need to have certain key skills and understandings that allow our organizations to grow and thrive. This three-month series will feature once-per-month webinars, optional weekly small-group deep dive sessions, and the opportunity for 1:1 consultation. This is tailored to ensure leaders master the most critical fundamentals of nonprofit finance. Each topic will include learning, discussion, and key deliverables participants will create that can be applied in your organization immediately.
