Nonprofits everywhere equate giving season with pumpkin spice, peppermint bark, and a development office that’s living on caffeine. But we would offer that before your staff gets to work, the finance and development teams should have a solid understanding of the organization’s financial position. That information can help light a fire with the staff and board, shape your year-end giving goals, and inform the messaging of your appeals.
So, we put together this handy checklist to help you get your financial house in order as we head into giving season. We’re pretty sure this is the first list of its kind – so enjoy and let us know how we can help!
