For staff and trustees of grantmaking organizations
Join Pat McGowan and Kristen Brown of CohnReznick for a hands-on workshop to explore the 990 and financial statements, and how they can be useful tools for evaluating the fiscal soundness of grantees.
Pat and Kristen will provide sample 990 and financial statements, and participants are encouraged to bring along real-life examples, as well. They will help participants focus on key information contained in these financials, and how to put them into a larger context when evaluating a grantee.
