Finance Management

Finance management is critical to the running of an effective and financially sustainable conservation organisation, but is often given low priority.

Finance management includes financial planning (budgeting), keeping accounts, financial monitoring and reporting, and appropriate financial governance systems and policies. Effective finance management helps you to manage grants and be accountable to donors and beneficiaries, to use resources efficiently, and to ensure financial sustainability for your organisation.
