Telling Your Orchestra’s Financial Story

Posted on: March 29, 2010

The League of American Orchestras & Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) invite you to participate in a financial leadership clinic open to six orchestra teams, Groups 3 to 6, via a competitive application process. This interactive clinic is a unique opportunity to bring your key staff and board members together to examine the crucial financial underpinnings of your organization.

The goal of the clinic is to help the leadership of orchestras make improved and more informed decisions regarding their organizations’ financial situation. The two-day clinic will combine an educational seminar with individual financial exercises and peer-based learning. Designed to increase the capacity of small to mid-size nonprofit organizations to read and interpret financial documents, identify and communicate financial goals, and begin to develop sound financial decision-making tools, participants will receive:

  • Help articulating the particular financial dynamics of your organization and setting financial goals;
  • A framework, in the form of a PowerPoint presentation, for telling your nonprofit’s financial story;
  • Follow-up one-on-one coaching to support your agency’s specific needs and priorities.

The Clinic will take place at the League’s national Conference in Atlanta on Tuesday, June 15, 2010 from 9:00am to 5:30pm and Wednesday, June 16, 2010 from 8:00am to 12:30pm. The cost of this clinic is a flat rate of $150 per person. 

NFF staff will work with each organization individually after the clinic for up to five hours with specific recommendations and/or answer questions.
