Financial Planning Challenges for Nonprofits

How Planning Maestro Can Help

A lack of accessibility: Nonprofits often lack the resources necessary to address their financial planning needs

Connectivity: Integrate Planning Maestro with your ERP software, to monitor and analyze your organization’s budget and actuals without hours spent on formulas. 

Unclear justification: Nonprofits need assurances and clarity for every decision made and simple budgeting tools can’t clearly project expenses with confidence and are difficult to manipulate

Agility: Planning Maestro is simple and easy to use with seamless implementation. When funding outcomes change or delayed grants arise, Planning Maestro helps you make actionable financial adjustments.

Collaboration: Collaborate with operational stakeholders to see the impact of strategic decisions and changing assumptions, while centralized budgets, forecasts, and reports remain accurate and up-to-date for the executive team. Given the broad scope requirements in the nonprofit sector, this collaboration is valuable for addressing all funding sources and generating accurate numbers. 

Technical complexity: Nonprofits need comprehensive solutions with simple usage and upkeep requirements and comprehensive FP&A software demand more technical expertise than many nonprofits have on hand.

Automation: Automate routine tasks, such as fund, revenue, grant, and billing processes, reducing responsibilities for your financial professionals and other members of your team. Automation also offers technical simplicity for organizations that lack an internal IT department. 

Cash flow uncertainty: With a revenue cycle that is often inconsistent, nonprofits need reliable and accurate cash flow projections that can keep up with constant change. 

Visibility: Integrate and normalize data from various sources, improving data accuracy and financial health insights. Complete visibility provides the assurance and clarity that nonprofits need to make budget changes and spend with confidence.
