Financial management know-how is often a low priority for nonprofits. But just like for-profit businesses, not-for-profits need strong financial management to fulfill their missions and deliver the best services possible. For organizations looking to become “fiscally fit,” The Wallace Foundation and leading consultant group Fiscal Management Associates (FMA) created, a suite of more than 60 free tools, how-tos, articles and other features. Watch as Maria Pesquiera, President and CEO of the Chicago organization Mujeres Latinas en Acción, discusses the need for nonprofit leaders to “own the numbers,” and FMA Founder and Managing Director Hilda Polanco explains how can help.
