Fiscal Literacy for Non-Profit Organizations

The Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) invites you to attend Fiscal Literacy for Non-Profit Organizations with Tammy Saben of Glivinski and Associates on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 9:00 am.

Nonprofit fundraisers have a passion for their organization’s mission, but sometimes lack familiarity with financial reports, cash flow or how to be the best stewards of hard earned funds. The intent of this workshop is to increase financial literacy by reducing the mystery of nonprofit budgets, financial reports and audits which may help you and your organization to implement best business practices and more transparent reporting to better fulfill your mission..

This event is FREE to attend with advance registration for current PPCI members; and $10 per person for non-members. To attend this event, please register online via the link below.

Tammy Saben

Tammy Saben, a 3rd generation Cape Codder, moved home from California 27 years ago. She immediately recognized that local expanding businesses needed sound, relevant financial information and solid best business practices for managing successful, sustainable entities. Thus she launched Glivinski & Associates 20 years ago to fulfil that need. The South Yarmouth team has grown to 11 professionals who manage the books, while providing controller and CFO level services to over 150 small local businesses, including 65+ non-profit organizations. The clients will confirm, that their survival of cyclical revenue streams, high costs and staff challenges were directly related to sound and feasible guidance provided by Tammy and her team. Tammy is a high-honors graduate of Suffolk University by way of Cape Cod Community College. In 2017 she was appointed by Governor Baker to the Board of Trustees of the Cape Cod Community College, and subsequently appointed Chair. Tammy also serves on the boards for Cape & Islands United Way, is the Treasurer for Friends of Children’s Cove, a past-President of Yarmouth Rotary Club and recipient of many community awards including the most recent, top 10 of 10 Suffolk Grads, The Hyannis Chamber Patrick Butler, Citizen of the Year, and The Cape Cod Center for Women’s, Beacon of Hope.
