VO Workshop: Bookkeeping Basics for NPOs

March 1, 2017, 9:00 - 11:00 AM

bookkeeping_the_basics-640px.jpgWe all know there is no glitz or glamour in finance and accounting, but there is pride in a job well done! Admit it, when everything balances perfectly at the end of the month, we secretly do a little dance on the spot while no one is watching.

Come to this workshop and you will learn the basics on how to manage the financial requirements of your organization. We will cover topics such as banking, expense reports, payroll, financial statements, budgeting, forecasting, reconciling your bank accounts and reporting to your board. Many of the topics discussed at this session will help lead the way for a hassle free audit. You will receive report templates and links to online resources to help you manage your finances.

Who should attend

Everyone who has a hand in the bookkeeping of the organization, this could include the Bookkeeper, Office Coordinator, or Executive Director.


Volunteer Ottawa, 363 Coventry Road, Ottawa
