How to Calculate and Report Overhead – and Why This Is So Important

About Video

Individuals (and even some foundations and corporations) often put considerable weight on a nonprofit’s “overhead ratio” when deciding whether to make a donation or not. This 5-minute Nonprofit Fundraising Center (NFC) presentation explains how administrative and fundraising expenses need to be carefully determined and reported. Curt Weeden joins NFC co-host Tanya Smith-Evans in recommending specific ways nonprofits can turn an “overhead ratio” into an asset and not a contribution-killer.
