Relieving the Burden of Budgets and Financial Reporting

Note: This video has two parts; the main presentation, followed by a question and answer session. 

How many ways can nonprofits slice-and-dice their financial information? Did you know foundations are the cause of much of the chopping and the resulting errors and misrepresentation? Project Streamline has taken a hard look at what financial information grantmakers require of applicants and grantees and the maze of templates, formats, time periods, and terminology. Hear how to both relieve the burden on grantees and ensure that your foundation is getting financial information with real integrity. Share your stories, questions, and thoughts on how to make sense of the numbers game.

Presenters: Byron Stuck, Director of Grants Management and Inquiry, Legal, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Jane Ward, Grants Manager, Eugene & Agnes E. Meyer Foundation
