Nonprofit Financial Management
I have close to 20 years of nonprofit experience. I worked my way up to CEO and CFO for an agency that owns my heart and I understand your pull to the mission and your feelings of being overwhelmed. I saw the struggles of nonprofit leaders and felt the pressure. I know that the mission is what drives you, I know that you believe in your work and I know that you somehow work harder, do more with less, and keep adding to your plate. This is a big reason why I started Capital CFO. I know there are agencies that need a professional on their side, handling their finances but not necessarily a full-time position or a department. Our outsourced bookkeepers and CFOs are able to work with you and be on your side so you can sell your mission and tell your story.
And your financial statements are the story you want to tell to your donors, stakeholders. board of directors and staff. They are how agencies know if they are doing well, where to cut costs, how much cash they have on hand, and help create a clear picture and path to your year end. Capital CFO is your team to handle the management of your accounting operations and breakdown the analysis in clear and transparent terms. Our financial reporting and analysis include:
Manage the preparation of all monthly and annual financial reports including tracking for grants
Budget preparation, management, and analysis of end of year projections
Financial forecasts, and cash flow for the organization
Help to summarize the current financial status
Provide timely and accurate analysis of financial reports and trends

Nonprofits face challenges, nonprofit leaders find solutions.
Nonprofit leaders are tackling some of the most difficult, multi-faceted, and systemic challenges in business. They operate in a system that under-funds and relies on sweat equity to make ends meet. But leaders create a culture that understands what it really takes to deliver on mission and are committed to building a revenue and business model that ensures financial sustainability and impact. Because nonprofit leaders are running a business, and selling a vision. They are not only leaders, they are important to your community. Capital CFO proudly offers training for nonprofit executives, Boards and CEOs to help them tell their important story.
