Arts Finance Empowerment Camp Series 2: Financial Management & Strategy

The Arts Finance Empowerment Camp is an interactive cohort learning program for nonprofit arts administrators and board members who want to build their financial management skills.

In Series 2 we take a deeper dive into what makes up nonprofit finances and get introduced to financial management tools.

Attendance in Series 1 is not a required prerequisite for Series 2 for those who already have an understanding of Profit & Loss, Budget vs. Actuals, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow.

“This program was everything I hoped it would be and more. I deeply appreciated the cohort-learning model and Yesenia’s warm, organized, knowledgeable, and humorous take on the material.” – Program Graduate
