Is this program right for you?
This Institute is designed for leaders, managers and board members of Senior Nutrition Programs – people who are responsible for building budgets or analyzing financial statements, but who don’t have a formal financial background.
What can you expect?
Our instructor will walk you step-by-step through the important terms and concepts, and you will have the chance to bring your own financial statements and ask questions throughout the day-and-a-half training. You will share your experiences and learn from your peers while working on practical excercises to help you tailor what you learn to your program's specific needs.
Here is what past Financial Management Institute attendees had to say:
“I feel that the knowledge that I got from the Institute is invaluable to my program! It allows me to grow as an individual and it also allows me to be able to share that knowledge with the others within my program.”
"This was ‘hands on’ training with many opportunities for interaction and application to my program’s financial system. Bob Kollar managed to make a normally stiff subject fun! The Financial Management training was one of the most comprehensive/motivational/applicable and engaging training sessions that I have ever attended. MOWAA does an exceptional job in bringing together providers across the country in our collective fight to end senior hunger. The environment is both warm and empowering and I am incredibly proud to be a Member."

About The Nonprofit Financial Management Institutes
Supported by Bank of America
Financial literacy is a critical skill set for every program leader. While most leaders do not directly handle a program’s bookkeeping and accounting, they do need to understand and monitor the financial condition of their organizations and make sure good financial management practices are being followed.
To equip our Members with the practical skills they need to monitor the financial health of their organizations and tie financial measures to their long-term strategy, MOWAA will be offering several live, intensive Financial Management Institutes at various locations throughout the next year, as well as a series of topical online webinars.
The Nonprofit Financial Management Institute offers three levels of training:
I. Basic Financial Management
Covering the basics of financial literacy for those with little or no financial background, this curriculum is designed for new and experienced leaders alike. This program will teach participants to read financial statements and use this knowledge to monitor the health of their organizations.
II. Intermediate Financial Management
This program is designed for those who have a basic understanding of key terms and concepts, but little to no financial background. This Institute includes key courses from the Basic and Advanced Institutes.
III. Advanced Financial Management
Providing in-depth instruction for those who already understand key financial and accounting terms and concepts, the program focuses on tying financial measures to your program’s strategy and effectiveness.
