Workshop: Financial Management 101 (ArtReach, Toronto)

Are you running a community project or involved with a larger organization? Already an ace at event management, social media, or youth engagement, but run in the other direction when you have to deal with money? Want to know how to manage grant funding when it affects your taxes?

As artists and community planners we are fiercely dedicated to mastering our creative practice which sometimes tends to leave us putting our administrative and financial organization on the back burner. In this workshop we will look at how to budget, keep track of your finances and what records you should be keeping for taxes. We will also look at what you need to claim for your taxes, which forms you need to fill out, and understanding how different sources of income (like receiving a grant) can impact your taxes.

Participants will also get hands-on time with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and Google Sheets, supported by our expert facilitators who will show you how to get the most out of these powerful financial management tools!

Date: Wednesday, August 8th 2018
Time: Networking and food at 5:30pm, workshop runs 6:00pm-9:00pm.
Location: Urban Arts, 5 Bartonville Avenue East, Toronto ON, M6M 2B1
