The purpose of the financial analysis project is for students to demonstrate understanding of the key concepts for the course. Students will profile, analyze, and assess the financial vulnerability of an existing nonprofit organization. As such, students should approach the project as if a local nonprofit hired them to serve as a financial consultant and analyze the organization’s financial situation. To accomplish this, students will need to interview a nonprofit financial manager. During the interview, students must obtain the organization’s budget and audited financial statements. These documents are generally not publicly available but are needed for the project and are required to be submitted with the final project. Students should reach out to nonprofit managers early in the semester and inform the manager of the types of information needed. If the manager is unwilling or unable to share the documents or commit to an interview, the student should select an alternative organization. The instructor will help students in any way possible, including submitting a letter to the organization explaining the purpose of the project and the treatment of confidential documents. Failure to conduct an interview and/or secure the necessary documents will result in a failing grade on the project. This project is worth 30% of the student’s final grade. Additionally, students must present their work to their peers at the end of the semester; the oral presentation is worth five (5) percent of the student’s final grade. Grading rubrics are available on Canvas. 1. Check-in form (5%)- due by November 16 (form posted on Canvas). 2. Setting the context (10%) Students will begin by providing a brief overview of the nonprofit organization that the student selected for analysis. Students should discuss the mission of the organization, its specific programs, and introduce the person interviewed. They should also consider including information on the financial philosophies of management and individuals/committees involved in the financial management of the organization (about 2 pages, but 3 pages max). 3. Analyzing the budget (10%) In the next section, students will discuss how the budget helps the organization fulfill its mission. Students must articulate their overall impressions of the budget and discuss any strengths and weaknesses of the budget. Other questions to consider include: Are there any programs or activities outside the scope of the mission? Could additional programs and activities be added by the organization? (about 2 pages, but 3 pages max). 4. Financial vulnerability of the organization (30%) Students will include a narrative that discusses the liquidity, solvency, efficiency, and profitability of the organization. This section should not simply summarize each ratio, but students should analyze and assess the organization’s overall liquidity, solvency, efficiency, and profitability. The ratios should support the student’s assessment (about 4 pages of text, but 6 pages max). Additionally, students must calculate and submit the following ratios in an appendix: current ratio, working capital ratio, quick ratio, debt-to-asset ratio, debt-to-equity ratio, asset turnover ratio, days receivable ratio, profit margin, and return on assets. Students must also submit ratios in an excel document with the values and all work shown (formulas showing). Students should label their ratios clearly. 5. Auditing and Internal Controls (15%) Students should analyze the organization’s financial audit and internal control policies. Students must highlight strong and inadequate/missing internal control best practice policies (about 2 pages, but 3 pages max). 6. Conclusion and Recommendations (15%) The project will conclude with students making (at least two) financial recommendations to the organization to enhance the organization’s financial health. In this section, students will discuss their overall financial impression of the organization and discuss any concerns they have regarding the financial health of the organization (about 2 pages, but 3 pages max). 7. Adherence to APA style and appropriate use of citations (15%).
