Intensive Focused Learning Course: Finance for Missional Organizations
When we are called to lead a mission-driven organization, we operate differently than for-profit entities. Our work is theologically centered in faithful stewardship and embodied justice. Professional financial management is often the most challenging part of this work. This course is an overview of the critical elements of responsible fiscal leadership, including accounting, budgeting, accountability & transparency, diversified income, and planning capital projects. In support of the course objectives, students will learn the basics of Quickbooks, a leading accounting software platform.
