Financial Storytelling and Communication

 

During times of change, turbulence, and uncertainty, it’s even more important to stay connected with stakeholders. Nonprofit leaders must be able to tell their financial story to create buy-in for decisions and support for potential changes. This webinar gives participants a framework for narrating their financial situation and offers ideas for communicating the financial story of 2020, 2021, and 2022 to boards, funders, and other stakeholders.
