    Topic: Budgeting for Non-profits 

    The financial aspect of running a non-profit can be a daunting task.  Grants, expenses, salaries - it can all be incredibly confusing.  This training will be geared at making it less difficult, and will discuss how to read financial statements, and how to ensure your organization is taking that information to manage your current and future budgeting needs.

    Our Speaker - Nicholas Groom

    Nicholas was born and raised in Casper.  He is an alumnus of the  University of Wyoming and the University of Texas where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in accounting.  Nicholas earned his CPA license and started his career with a CPA firm in Laramie, Wyoming in 2004.  In 2013 he moved back to his hometown and joined Grooms & Harkins, PC.  Nicholas has 15 years of experience auditing not-for-profit entities ranging from small single mission programs to large organizations including recipients of federal grants.  Nicholas currently serves on the board of the Casper Area Economic Development Alliance, the Casper Downtown Development Association, Hilltop Bank, and is active in many commissions at his church.  Nicholas is a member of the Wyoming Society of CPAs and the American Institute of CPAs.

    It doesn’t matter how much time, effort, and expense you put into selecting the right software for your organization—if you don’t plan all the steps necessary to ensure a successful implementation, you’re wasting your precious resources.

    Implementation involves a number of elements, including getting buy-in from the people who will be using the system and those who lead the organization, making plans to migrate data and integrate the new software with your other systems, and training staff on procedures and best practices for using the new software.

    Idealware designed this new course to help you with each step. They will show you how to make sure you are including all the right people throughout the process. They will help you determine whether you need outside help—and how to work effectively with consultants or vendors. And they’ll identify common mistakes and show you how to avoid them.

    This course includes “homework” after each session to help you put these lessons into practice, as well as additional resources for you to take with you to help with your own implementation projects.

    During this course you will learn:

      What a typical implementation project looks like.

      Who is involved.

      How to adjust for common scenarios.

      How to keep the project on time and scope, including best practices for project management and avoiding common bottlenecks.

      How to work with vendors and consultants.

      What common mistakes to expect, and how to avoid them.

       Best practices for change management and user adoption.


    3-part webinar series: August 22, August 29 and September 5, 2019; 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (Mountain). All registered participants are granted access to the recordings of each session. Participants who cannot attend any of the sessions due to scheduling conflicts will still have access to the toolkit presentation desks and handouts.

    • Webinar Series


    Your website is the face of your organization—but like any familiar face, you stop seeing it the way others see it. Maybe it's time to take a fresh look at your site to understand whether your audience and your staff members are getting what they need from it.

    Over five sessions, Idealware will help you think through how to develop a more useful and engaging website. They’ll walk you through website basics, how to lead a redesign project, best practices for accessibility, mobile optimization, content management systems, technical details, and online branding. They’ll also talk about how website content works alongside email, direct mail, and social media efforts to create an organization’s communications mix.

    During this course you’ll:

    • Audit your site against a core set of questions.
    • Define goals for how your website will serve your audience.
    • Learn best practices for designing an accessible, usable, and polished website.
    • Think through your content strategy and approach to your site’s design.
    • Dig into website analytics and how you can use metrics to optimize the user experience for your site visitors.
    • Review the technical side of developing and managing your website.
    • Synthesize your research, ideas, and strategies into a vision that you can share across your organization.
    • Create an action plan and prioritize the steps you will need to take.

    5-part webinar series: October 3 - 31 (Thursdays), 2019; 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (Mountain). All registered participants are granted access to the recordings of each session. Participants who cannot attend any of the sessions due to scheduling conflicts will still have access to the toolkit presentation desks and handouts.
