Financial Management for Nonprofit Organizations
Policies and Practices
Hundreds of thousands of nonprofit organizations of all sizes exist today, each with a responsibility to its mission, its constituents, its employees, and its volunteers.
It is no wonder, between competition from other organizations for contributions, retaining supporters and employees, and maintaining strong internal control systems in light of the present Sarbanes-Oxley environment—all while accomplishing a stated mission—that the financial management of a nonprofit organization is just as daunting as that of a for-profit corporation.
