Completing regular fund audit activity is critical to an organization’s ability to steward and proactively manage the donor gifts in which it has been entrusted. While auditing processes occur regularly in the financial space, an organization must also dedicate time and resources to actively look at funds and management trends from a donor relations perspective to identify any shortcomings that may negatively affect current and future fundraising efforts. This may include scenarios where funds are not awarded to maximum capacity, in accordance to donor intent, or where the original purpose has become dated and ineffectual for your organization. Given the economic hardships facing us at this time, identifying underutilized financial resources and proactively managing spending from endowed and non-endowed funds is imperative.
