Practical Financial Management for NGOs

Alex Jacobs , Terry Lewis


The aim of this course is to make financial management accessible and useful. It will be of particular interest to non-finance staff: project officers, programme managers, senior managers and board members of not-for-profit organisations.

The course takes participants through the basic principles and techniques of organisational finance. Financial management is a vital part of managing operations, but project officers and managers do not have to be financial experts or qualified accountants to understand and use financial management tools. Financial management is based on common sense ideas; indeed, it can even be enjoyable and rewarding. This course shows how.

Throughout the course there are exercises and assignments which will either draw on participants' own experience or help them learn a particular skill. Several of the exercises are aimed at getting participants to produce materials that will be useful in their future financial management work.

The course is part of an integrated collection of courses developed by Fahamu in conjunction with the University of Oxford.

Orders within the United Kingdom include VAT.
