In this one-hour webinar, fiscal strategy experts Paul Preziotti and Michael Gellman help nonprofit leaders protect their organization financial footing as the pace—and economic impact—of change intensifies.

Strategies to bridge through to true recovery. You’ll explore how to keep downward pressure on funding and increasing use of operating reserves from triggering major deficits. You’ll also learn the value of pivoting away from a fiscal year and annual budget. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for expert guidance on how to protect your organization’s financial health through rapid changes, including how to:

  • Evaluate financial health and use of operating reserves
  • Use a “financial bias” to inform management decision-making
  • Reap (and communicate) the benefits of short-term rolling budgets
  • Help keep the rapidly changing demand for programs and services from triggering a fast-growing deficit

You’ll come away from this webinar with a practical framework for making sound financial decisions in today’s climate of disruption, uncertainty and hyper-change.
