Broward Cultural Division, ArtServe, Inc. and Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) invite the area’s cultural executives, non-profit managers, board members and development staff to a seminar Linking Money to Mission: Interpreting Financial Statements on Thursday, January 31, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at ArtServe Inc, 1350 East Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.
Using real life examples, this workshop will engage participants in the fundamentals of nonprofit finance in order to better equip nonprofit leaders and managers to interpret financial statements and assess their organizations' fiscal health. NFF's approach seeks to demystify, by presenting old information in a fresh and productive way. This session introduces the concept of nonprofit capitalization and how underlying core business models will drive vision. The goal of this workshop is to help nonprofits develop and use financial information to make better (and often difficult) decisions; to better communicate this information to stakeholders; and to build a culture of analysis, planning and management that reinforces both mission and organizational strength.
Facilitator, Alice Richardson-Antonelli joined NFF in 2002 and is responsible for leading consulting services initiatives, including playing a lead role in the delivery and product development of NFF’s full range of consulting services; cultivating and managing client relationships; teaching workshops and seminars. She has been very active in her community having volunteered as a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Association, City Harvest, Habitat for Humanity, and Build On. She served as a member of the board of Narberth Presbyterian Church, and currently serves as a member of the Audit Committee of Delaware Valley Grantmakers. Antonelli has also served in the capacity of grant panelist for the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, and faculty for the NeighborWorks America Training Institute.
Ms. Richardson-Antonelli will be co-presenting the seminar with Bill Pinakiewicz who has been involved in education and other mission-driven nonprofits as an educator, administrator, financial advisor and trustee. Pinakiewicz is responsible for managing NFF's financial services, advisory services and new business development activities throughout the six-state New England region.
The fee for the workshop is $25 per person. Seating is limited.
