Mango's Health check (English)

Guide to Financial Management

Mango's Health check

Mango's financial management Health check will help you see how healthy the financial management is in your NGO. It is available here for free download.

The Health check is specifically designed for small and medium sized NGOs as a self assessment tool so that you can identify the areas where you need to improve.

The Health check can be run by any member of staff or a trustee. You do not need specialist financial skills to complete it. It includes explanations of each section and a glossary of the financial terms used.

By the end of the Health check you will be able to tell if the financial management in your NGO is healthy or sick – and whether you need to call for help!

The fully revised and updated version (October 2009) is also available in several languages. The previous version is still available in other languages in the archive section below. If you can help us to translate the Health Check into even more languages, please contact us.  

Version 3 is also available in an Excel format in English.
