Question: How much money should we have in reserves?

Answer: Best practice for reserves is 3-6 months in expenses. It depends somewhat on the organization. For example, organizations such as churches or dues-paying groups typically have a steady stream of income that will not dry up in a week or month. Organizations such as these might need to be less conservative and lean more toward the 3 month reserves. Organizations that are more reliant on, let’s say one to two sources of income (e.g. a grant that funds most operations), should probably have a higher level of reserves. The same with organizations that have a narrow cycle of revenue (perhaps where much of the revenue comes in over 2-3 months of the fiscal year).
