    Show Me the Money
    What you need to know about nonprofit finance to make good decisions

    The Wyoming Nonprofit Network is pleased to partner with the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits to bring you this training.

    Money is the fuel that drives your organization forward. You need to understand the tools nonprofits use to track, manage, and oversee money if you are going to make the best decisions for your organization.

    Show Me the Money is designed to give board members and the people who work with them the knowledge and opportunity to practice what they need to strengthen their organization’s financial literacy. By the end of the session, you will be able to show your colleagues what you know about your organization’s financial story.

    Show Me the Money is an interactive learning event that covers these topics:

    • How to read a Statement of Financial Position (Balance Sheet) and Statement of Activities (Income Statement)
    • How to plan for CASH FLOW over the course of a year
    • How to BUDGET to increase core mission support
    • What DATA you should be paying most attention to
    • How to improve OVERSIGHT to reduce fraud and error

    Show Me the Money is accessible to people new to nonprofit finance or comfortable talking about money. It is also helpful to financial experts looking for ways to communicate financial topics with a diversity of people. Participants will receive a workbook to help bring lessons back into the life of their organizations.

    We are excited to kick-off our first 2023 meeting for Laramie County nonprofits. This is a new format! Meetings are monthly; first thing in the morning. This is a chance to start your day with like-minded community leaders.

    Since we are so close to Mort's Bagels, we will provide the bagels. Bluepeak is kind enough to provide the coffee. 

    After a quick icebreaker, we will talk about the new format and have sign-up sheet for those of you that would like to host a meeting at your facility or at Bluepeak. We will also have a roundtable discussion on a current topic and the Wyoming Nonprofit Network team will provide updates on WyoGives, Leadership Summit, and more!

    Please register so we know how many people to plan on. 

    The Laramie County Nonprofit Networking Meeting is a monthly opportunity to meet with peers, create partnerships and collaborations with other like-minded leaders, learn and develop your skills, and explore topics relevant to our nonprofit work! Join us for coffee and a breakfast snack as we learn a little and get to know each other better.
