Handling Functional Expenses and Developing Indirect Rates: Best Practices for Effective Nonprofit Financial Operations

Event type:  Webinar
Date:  September 19, 2017
Time:  11:00AM EST-12:00PM EST

With access to your nonprofit organization’s financial information becoming more readily available to donors and the public at large, it is more important than ever to have your expenses clearly identified and allocated properly. Incorrect functional and/or indirect allocation can render perfectly legitimate and necessary expenses a liability for your organization and cause headaches for management.

Join GRF for an overview of allocating direct and indirect expenses and implementation of appropriate indirect rates. Our nonprofit professionals will provide the information you need to help your organization avoid common problems, develop best practices and allow for accurate tracking and reporting of overhead to reflect your organization’s efficiency and effectiveness.

We will discuss common issues related to functional allocation and indirect rates including:

  • Determining which costs should be allocated
  • The basis of allocation
  • Federal vs. Non-federal funders
  • How to develop the appropriate rate for your organization
  • Structuring indirect rates in accordance with Uniform Guidance

Join us for an interactive discussion and learn how your organization should respond to stay ahead of the curve. You’ll come away with practical knowledge and tools to help your organization tackle some of its biggest challenges. Click here to register today and earn 1.0 CPE credits.


The webinar will be presented by Partners Andreas A. Alexandrou, CPA and Jennifer Arminger, CPA.
