Is financial health a priority at your nonprofit? If so, then a little more than weekly housekeeping may be in order. Financial risks can result from insufficient internal controls or practices that invite fraud, or from fundraising activities that go awry. Not all financial risk is avoidable of course, (think stock market volatility) but being prepared — and having appropriate policies in place to minimize and transfer risk is key to a healthy organization.

The Center team can help you develop or refine existing financial policies and procedures and protect your mission against unnecessary financial risks.

Engage the Nonprofit Risk Management Center as your consulting partner to:

  • evaluate financial reporting
  • develop or update fraud prevention strategies
  • refine or clarify the roles and responsibilities of your Finance and Audit Committees
  • expand the scope of your Finance or Audit Committee to include risk oversight
  • develop a fiscal or risk dashboard
  • identify and evaluate the suitability of best practices in financial or risk reporting

To discuss your organization’s needs, please contact us at (703) 777-3504 or
