What does it mean to provide financial oversight? It is much more than receiving a monthly financial report and approving a budget. Most nonprofit organizations fail to provide the appropriate financial oversight through their governing boards and finance committees. Too much time is spent on trivial financial information and not enough time is spent on key metrics and trends. Further complicating the financial oversight process is the complicated and detailed manner in which financial information is provided. The majority of leadership staff and board members simply do not understand it.
