ASU Offers Non-Profit Training to Concho Valley Residents
A course examining the unique fiscal responsibilities and challenges of financial planning and management for employees and board members of non-profit organizations will be offered by the Angelo State University Division of Continuing Studies on Tuesdays, Oct. 12 through Nov. 16.
"Financial Planning for Non-Profits," one of eight courses comprising the division's Non-Profit Management Certificate Program, will be taught by Sharon Meyer, vice president for finance and administration at ASU. Classes will meet 6-9 p.m. each Tuesday on the ASU campus.
The seminar will explore the terminology and content of a non-profit financial report and will show participants how to soundly direct the financial matters of a non-profit organization. Topics will cover budgeting and financial planning, tax issues, internal and external reporting, audits, legal requirements of fundraising and legal liabilities of the board, employees and the organization itself.
Course instructor Meyer has more than 20 years of experience in financial planning and management for not-for-profit organizations. She holds degrees from Golden Gate University and the University of Houston-Clear Lake.
The non-profit certificate program is designed to arm non-profit professionals, including managers, board members and volunteers, with the skills necessary to effectively and efficiently run or participate in a non-profit organization. Courses may be taken individually, especially by board members and/or volunteers who wish to enhance their contributions to an organization.
Cost for the six-week course on non-profit financial planning is $90. For additional information or to register for the program, contact ASU's Division of Continuing Studies, 325-942-2339.
