Each quarterly session will take place from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. at the Hannah Grimes Center in Keene, NH, and will include two parts:
First, a presentation or facilitated discussion by an experienced moderator, and then the peer-to-peer support group session, which may expand on the discussion around the topic just presented, or may be more of the ad hoc sharing that has been the hallmark of this popular series. Ideally, participants will sign up for all four sessions.
June 11, Building to Sustainability – Considering Various Non-Profit Financial Models: Facilitated by Mary Ann Kristiansen, Executive Director, Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship
No money; no mission. Do you have strong financial systems and processes? They are the starting point to building an efficient, sustainable organization and critical in the consideration of various models and approaches to funding. Bring your existing financial statements - budget projections, P&L, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow as well as your current funding model. Don't worry if you have gaps or if it is all one big gap, that's what this session is about! This will be a hands-on discussion of current conditions of the participating organizations as well as some guidance in developing strong financial systems and processes that will ground the work of your organization. It will also include a discussion of various models and approaches to funding that are based on what is and isn’t working in this region today.
