The Power of Financial Forecasting

Posted on April 9, 2018

Financial forecasting is a vital ingredient in the planning process of any nonprofit, whether new or long established.

A strong financial management process is essential to every nonprofit’s well-being, sustainability and viability.

In times of concern and uncertainty about the economy and the prospects for funding, the ability to perform accurate and timely financial forecasting becomes indispensable. Day to day challenges, such as gift restrictions, adherence to mission, fixed and variable expenses, call for the skill to accurately forecast cash flow, while being adaptable to changing conditions.

The result is a stronger and more resilient organization.
