Financial management is more than keeping accounting records. It involves planning, organizing, controlling and monitoring financial resources in order to achieve objectives. Sound financial management will involve you in long-term strategic planning and short-term operations planning. This financial planning should become part of your organization’s ongoing planning process.

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Make effective and efficient use of resources
  • Become more accountable to donors and other stakeholders
  • Prepare for long-term financial sustainability
