Publisher Comments:

Cash flow management is key to the financial health and overall success of a nonprofit organization. But many nonprofits address cash flow issues when only there is a problem, missing the opportunity to use cash flow as the powerful strategic tool it has the potential to be.

In The Cash Flow Management Book for Nonprofits, financial management experts Murray Dropkin and Allyson Hayden present a powerful, strategic tool for the financial management of nonprofit organizations— no matter how large or small. The authors show nonprofit leaders how to create a proven plan for cash flow management and develop effective strategies for day-to-day and long-term financial planning. This nuts-and-bolts resource outlines the basics of cash flow management, explains the various revenue streams, and helps readers to identify their primary revenue sources and corresponding cash flow management strategies. In addition, this practical workbook is filled with to-do lists, sample forms, worksheets, schedules, policies and procedures, checklists, and more. Using the book's ideas and recommendations, any nonprofit can learn how to increase its income, improve its financial performance, and manage the resources that will help realize its mission.
