Published by André Le Roux
Practical Guide to the Financial Management of NGOs published


The NID has, since 2005 and as part of a program to strengthen civil society in Namibia, conducted a wide range of training and technical assistance programs aimed at improving the internal management of civil society organisations. A Practical Guide to the Financial Management of NGOs has now been published as part of the NID’s Fundamentals of NGO Management series. Compiled and written by Theunis Keulder and Erika Benz, the guide has been developed using inputs obtained from numerous training sessions with NGOs, and is intended to assist organisations in their financial management function. It is also used extensively by the NID in training civil society organisations in financial management matters.



The guide provides an introduction for the non-financial manager or leader to controlling the finances of an organisation in such a way that the organisation can discharge its duty of being financially accountable. It covers issues such as the accounting system, budgeting, financial reporting, staff administration and audits. It may be reviewed by everyone in an organisation who is responsible for financial management, including those who prepare grant proposals and those who record and report on grant project activities. The guide is not offered as a complete manual of procedures on financial administration; it is intended only to provide practical information on what is expected from organisations in terms of fiscal accountability. To this end, the most important financial reporting and administrative forms are annexed as templates. A case study is also attached for practical training purposes.



The publication of the guide was funded by the Embassy of Finland. It can be downloaded from the NID’s website www.nid.org.na
