This course is part of the Management and Supervision in Human Services professional certificate program, which is geared toward professionals who find themselves in a management or supervisory role at a social work agency or human services organization, yet have not had formal management training or leadership experience.
Modules 1 and 2: Financial Management
In Financial Management, we will discuss how management requires being able to design a program's budget and understand how to manage a budget. The session will first provide an introduction to budgeting, the purpose of budgeting, the budget process, and how to work with a budget variance. The second half of the session will cover compensation, benefits, and understanding key financial statements. The session will utilize lectures and activities to help you learn the skills to develop and manage a budget, and understand the finances of a non-profit organization.
Modules 3 and 4: Grant Writing
In Grant Writing, we will discuss what elements make a grant that funders want to fund, finding the “right” funder for your agency, determining your “sweet-spot” for funders, and leveraging that knowledge to win grants. The session will also explore ways to sustain funding after the grant expires, and how to write grants for various funders including philanthropists, private and family foundations, state and local governments, and federal grants, all of which require very different and varied components. We will also review how the new dynamic of grant writing caused by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has changed what foundations are looking for. By the end of the session, participants will be able to understand and identify the most receptive funder for their cause.
Participants will learn how non-profit organizations use, develop, and manage budgets, along with adjusting for variances.
Participants will learn basic compensation concepts.
Participants will be introduced to the five basic financial statements used in not for profit organizations.
Participants will gain a foundation on the entire grants process (prospect research, stewardship, grant writing, grant submission, and follow-up).
Participants will review how to draft a competitive grant proposal (standard vs. COVID-19).
Participants will determine ways to increase institutional giving at their organization.
