Let’s Dive In and Explore the Form 990

June 11 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Tuesday, June 11, 2019 | 12:30 PM – 3:00 PM
Philanthropy Massachusetts, 133 Federal St., Suite 802, Boston, MA
Join us for a deeper analytic dive into the Form 990. This familiar statement presents a wealth of data about a nonprofit organization, but what matters most? Learn a method for reviewing the 990, understanding what is key information, and identifying red flags that merit further investigation. In this hands-on workshop, you will apply what you learn by analyzing a nonprofit organization’s 990 with a small group of your peers.
Questions and conversation encouraged!
Key Learning: With expert guidance from workshop leaders and working on a case study with your peers, find out:
  • What the 990 can tell you that financial statements do not
  • What are all the schedules attached to the 990 and what can they tell you
  • What are restricted assets and why do restrictions matter
  • What are some red flags to watch for
