Financial Strategy in Response to the COVID-19 Crisis – Session 2 – Webinar

Video Recording:

Build a Flexible Financial Strategy


The current public health crisis has disrupted many non-profits’ operations and funding sources, with longer-term impacts that remain unknown. Organizations face immediate budget impacts and potential threats to sustainability. In this series of two 90-minute webinars we will help non-profit leaders visualize and chart a financial strategy to proactively address the short- and longer-term impacts of the crisis. At the conclusion of the series, participants will have a conceptual framework to pave a pathway toward financial sustainability amid uncertainty. This is session 2, Build a Flexible Financial Strategy, of the two-part webinar series.

Also register for Session 1 – Stop the Financial Bleeding and Define a Process: May 5, 1-2:30 pm PST

Target Audience:

Senior non-profit managers and board members.

Learning Objectives:

This series will enable participants to:

  • Identify short-term approaches to cutting costs, bolstering revenues and re-budgeting
  • Describe key metrics for financial health
  • Clarify underlying business model challenges and sources of financial stress
  • Define key elements of a financial strategy
  • Employ effective communication methods with stakeholders regarding finance

Session Format:

These sessions will be delivered as two sequential 90-minute webinars. Since there is almost no overlap in content, it is highly recommended that you attend both. These webinars will be recorded, so if you can only attend one session we recommend you also listen to the session you missed.
