Understanding the Finances (Interactive)

Date: 09 Jul 2024


Overseeing the finances is probably one of the most important tasks you have as a board member. Financial literacy will put your organisation in the best position to promote and fulfil your organisation’s mission. If you don’t understand how the finances work, you’ll be at risk of getting caught up if anything goes wrong.

How well do you understand the financial performance and position of your organisation?

  • Why you need to understand your organisation’s finances
