This October, more than 40 community leaders from nonprofit organizations came to our training on financial responsibility and internal controls for fraud prevention–part of our Nonprofit Leaders Series. We were thrilled to have more than 30 organizations represented! Hosted in partnership with the Otsego County Community Foundation, these workshops provide ongoing training for our local nonprofits and are helping to build a stronger community that’s a better place to live, work and enjoy. Stay tuned for the schedule of 2016 workshops!
Topics covered included:
- Understanding financial statements
- Fraud prevention and protection
- Internal controls to keep your organization on the up-and-up
About the Nonprofit Leaders Series
Over the past four decades, Huron Pines’ work to conserve the forests, lakes and streams of Northeast Michigan has connected us with community leaders and diverse partners across the region. Thanks to support from the Otsego County Community Foundation, we have been able to leverage these connections and respond to a pressing regional need for nonprofit leadership development through the Nonprofit Leaders Series.
In Northeast Michigan and Otsego County in particular, we understand that our rich natural resources are closely tied to the quality of life in our community, and to the recreation-based economies that depend on our pristine woodlands and waters. We know that by pausing to share knowledge, align priorities and collaborate with our fellow nonprofits we can all work more effectively toward our missions and lift up all sectors in our region.
