Building Blocks for Financial Health: Metrics and Planning

Join us to hear key updates and news from SMU DataArts, followed by a deep dive into two elements of financial health: financial metrics, and financial projections. You will apply these concepts in small groups with practice scenarios, and learn about tools and educational resources available from DataArts to help you apply the concepts at your own organization. This workshop will build your understanding of non-profit financial concepts and help you get more out of your Cultural Data Profile.
