Training course – Charity finances for trustees, Tuesday 17th September

Are your management committee in need of some support in how to make sense and better use of the management accounts?

CVSF has arranged an evening training course on Charity finances for trustees

Tuesday 17th September 2013, 6pm – 8pm

The aim is to give trustees a basic understanding of how charity finances should be run so that they can feel confident in their role as a trustee.

Points that will be covered:

  • Review of charity accounts. What the different terms mean and what the important figures are.
  • Good financial practices for Charities. What financial information you should expect as a trustee and how to interpret this information.
  • Funding applications and monitoring. Most charities are dependent on funding so they constantly have to apply for funding and report back to the funders on how their money has been spent.
  • A brief overview of tax for Charities. Most people ignore tax for Charities as they think they are outside the tax system. However, there some key tax issues that do have implications for charities. This includes a discussion around claiming gift aid.

This session is provided by Corporate Partnerships a project of Skills Exchange, and will be delivered by Carol Lewis of Bainbridge Lewis
