As we enter the fourth month of Life with Covid, we are seeing more clearly that our nonprofit world will never be the same. The changes we are making should be considered long term, not temporary. I would be happy to help you think through operational and systems changes you may need to consider over the next year. If working remotely becomes a large percentage of your work, do you need to pay staff for internet and cell phone usage? Is Zoom the best meeting software? How do you manage people when you can't sit in a room with them? Though I started from finance, over the years, I have learned how critically important it is to map out all the pieces of the system that goes into making a nonprofit organization function. Let me put that experience to work with you and your organization.
My newest client is Amy Wilson Sheldon, who is launching
Metrowest Readers Fest,
grown out of Amy's Metrowest events called
A Lifely Read
(click on the link above to go to their website). As an avid reader, I'm excited to help them "become" an organization; we've filed for nonprofit status, created a Board and are now working on thinking through structures to help them move forward.
I've also been working with several clients to revise their Board financial reports to ensure that the right information is presented and clear. The key is to first ask: how do we want to use this information to help us move forward?
