This CPE course is included in the comprehensive Not-for-Profit Certificate I Program. It can also be purchased individually or as a part of the Not-for-Profit Accounting and Financial Reporting track.
Not-for-profit organizations (NFPs) prepare financial statements to report critical information about programs and operations to a diverse group of stakeholders. Users of an NFP's financial statements include donors, grantors, creditors, program beneficiaries, and others who have a need to assess the financial health of the NFP. In this CPE course, you will work through several examples to understand the basic reporting requirements, note disclosures and presentation formats that are available to NFPs.
