Land trusts exist to conserve land, but to do that they must have adequate funds to finance their activities and programs -- both today and forever. It takes a solid understanding of budgets, financial reports and internal controls to ensure that the money you raise is spent appropriately and reported accurately to donors, the community and the IRS (note: the board’s role in financial oversight is covered in the board member learning path). Travel the Financial Management Learning Path to uncover training resources to prepare you to manage your land trust’s finances.

Where available, self-guided courses are included but written guidance on practices is also available and listed.
