Participant Testimonials – Financial Training for Nonprofits

“Joan Renner had such a great way to explain complex information in a simple manner that anyone, with or without an accounting background, knew what was going on. She was really an incredible facilitator and I am looking forward to bringing back what I learned from her and best practices from my peers to my non-profit.”
