Top Indicators of Nonprofit Financial Health

By Peter Kramer. Hosted by the Nonprofit Finance Fund®.

“How can nonprofit executives, funders, and advisors identify what matters most when examining finances? What are some trends and indicators that can guide us through an abundance of data and help assess true financial health?

“Not all financial indicators are created equal. Below, you’ll find a short list of financial health metrics based on NFF’s years of experience lending to and advising nonprofits. You can find the data for these metrics on historical-looking documents such as audited financial statements and Forms 990, as well as on forward-looking internal budgets and projections.”
