Follow the Dollar: Financial Transparency in the Accountable Organization
March 24, 1:00 p.m. ET

Funding your organizational mission depends on building trust with your financial supporters. That's why ensuring full transparency into how every dollar enters and exits your organization is so critical. Achieving complete accountability is a challenge for even the most sophisticated management organizations, especially if funding enters your organization through multiple revenue sources or transactional systems. Restricting the usage of funding only complicates the management challenge. In this practical webinar for financial administrators and organizational leaders, Blackbaud financial expert, Liz Marenakos, provides a model for achieving fiscal transparency across all four key revenue models found in today's social good organizations. You'll learn how to leverage the proper people, processes, and technology to follow every dollar throughout its life-cycle within your organization.
