In today’s nonprofit environment, the expectations for transparency, accountability, oversight and governance are higher than ever.  Today’s nonprofit executive is charged with achieving a high degree of transparency and accountability.  Today’s nonprofit Board members are expected to lead with active financial oversight and good governance.  Today’s nonprofit leaders must guide the organization strategically to best carry out its mission.  Today’s donors have sophisticated tools to evaluate and compare the charities they choose to support.

At 501(c)(fit!)®, our nonprofit professionals understand the challenges nonprofits face today and we bring that knowledge and experience to each and every participant.  Through our live financial intensive training seminars, as well as our extended training webinars and webinar solutions, 501(c)(fit!)® brings today’s nonprofits and their leaders the financial perspective, skills and knowledge to lead their organizations with confidence.

Our financial leadership training seminar for emerging nonprofit professionals prepares new nonprofit leaders to exercise their oversight responsibilities over the finance side of the organization.

Our FIT Nonprofits series helps nonprofit leaders move their organizations forward with strength and sustainability based on the Six Strengths of FIT Nonprofits.

We are passionate about bringing nonprofits and their leaders the power to excel.  Our 501(c)(fit!)® resources empower nonprofits and their leaders with financial intensive training on financial reporting concepts, accounting solutions, budgeting, nonprofit tax, governance and more.  The 501(c)(fit!)® program takes the mystery out of the finance function, strengthening today’s nonprofits and their leaders.  Make a commitment to strengthening your professional power and skills.  The mission of 501(c)(fit!)® is to empower you.
