NPCC Managing Costs Workshop Feb. 13, 2019

Posted on February 1, 2019


Untangling the Multiple Views of Cost

Understanding and managing costs are critical to organizational decision-making, but it can also be a daunting challenge. We help you untangle the overlapping perspectives on costs, keep an eye out for those often overlooked, and outline steps to calculate the comprehensive cost of programs as well as your whole enterprise. You’ll take home NFF’s customizable cost allocation tool to better understand the cost of mission delivery for negotiating, fundraising, and financial storytelling purposes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Definitions and perspectives on costs especially in relationship to overhead and indirect
  • An overview of approaches to allocations
  • Step-by-step walkthrough of costing out the direct, indirect, and full costs of programs and an Excel-based allocations tool
  • A discussion on how to use cost data to communicate the organization’s needs

This workshop will be presented by Jina Paik, Director, and Dominique Hugg, Senior Associate, of Nonprofit Finance Fund

Area of Excellence: Financial Management
