Oklahoma Conference on Nonprofit Law & Finance

Oklahoma Conference on Nonprofit Law & Finance

April 29-30, 2021 – Virtual Conference

This two-day conference provides focused attention on core issues for both private foundations and charitable organizations including governance, UBIT, investment, and financial statements.

Conference sessions will cover new and developing legislation, legal compliance, charitable giving, financial oversight, and Oklahoma policy and advocacy, as well as new trends in cultural competency, cyber security and more.

The conference features local and regionally recognized experts from private foundations, public charities, law, finance and government to illuminate the latest legal, tax and governance issues affecting nonprofit organizations.

As the perfect overview for new entrants and seasoned practitioners in the field, this conference is designed for lawyers and CPAs who have nonprofit clients, as well as nonprofit executives looking to gain insight into legal and financial best practices. The setting allows for optimal networking among this growing sector.

The Oklahoma Conference on Nonprofit Law & Finance takes place every two years. The next conference will be in 2021.

  • "One of the best things about the training is it breaks everything down into fundamentals. So, if you are a brand new person, just now starting, it gives you the basics for that. If you are experienced and have been working in the area before, you are growing your skills."

  • "The training was very informative, very well-rounded. I liked that they added in workshops. So, not only were they telling you what could be the best for you to do, but they helped you to figure out how to tailor it for your organization."

  • OKCNP provides excellent, world-class training opportunities, and recently provided excellent strategic planning assistance to us, all with a significant member discount. The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits is a great resource!

  • Thanks to all of your staff for the training and experience you offer to raise the level of competence and confidence in the nonprofit sector. I've learned a great deal in your classes and hope to apply these lessons in the nonprofit sector.

  • Shared Services saved my professional sanity! We had been using a CPA for years that wasn’t able to provide the reporting required for grant applications and funding requests. Our Financial Statements were confusing and almost impossible to read, even for our Board Members that had backgrounds in Finance. The staff at Shared Services worked with me to rebuild our whole financial structure and now we are growing like never before. "

  • "I've taken several trainings at OKCNP since becoming a member -- Annual Fund Campaign, Funders Forum, Standards for Excellence, and The Partnership -- we've really taken advantage of our membership, because we want to professionalize our foundation so it has a forward-facing transparency for our donors."

  • The most satisfying part of the Leaders' Circle was getting to know the cohort group members. Being an executive director is a lonely job. Having the ability to discuss issues within a safe forum that OKCNP created was priceless. There was so much experience, knowledge, and wisdom passed around that my own job was ultimately made more enjoyable and productive.

  • “Through the Shared Financial Services we are able to have services of a CPA to help us manage our federal grants because we do not have enough money in our budget for a full time accountant, so partnering with OKCNP allows us to have the best of both worlds -- to have an accountant to meet our needs, and also to free my time up to do more things."

  • I cannot begin to express the insight and knowledge I gained from the OKCNP’s Leaders Circle. Lead by expert advisers, the value I gained came from the cross-feed of knowledge, experience, and real situations from each of the leaders in our group. This was a small intimate setting that allowed for relationships to evolve so we felt comfortable sharing about any situation we may have been dealing with. It was a great learning experience.
