Fundamentals of Finance: Best Practices for Grassroots Groups

Niote: Our free webinars are designed for and tailored to community leaders working and volunteering within sport, culture and recreation in south east Saskatchewan. Those living outside the district are encouraged to register but may be denied a spot if workshop space is not available.

Workshop Focus: A crash course on legal roles, financial statements, and key financial elements every grassrootssport, culture and recreation board member should understand.

What Will You Learn?
Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding the board’s financial responsibilities as directors (fundamental fiduciary duties for non-profit board; financial planning and budgeting, finance committee and treasurer roles)
  • Understanding financial risk and the importance of financial controls/policy
  • Understanding basic accounting concepts and reports required (how to read, interpret, and understand the financial reports required for board meetings/legal requirements)

Why Should You Attend? Lack of financial background along with tight budgets and no personnel/paid staff present unique financial literacy challenges for small not-for-profit board members. Increase your financial literacy by taking away the mystery of financial concepts and reports!
