Guide to Financial Management

Usage policy


Management Accounting for Non Governmental Organisations (referred to hereafter as 'Mango') supplies its Guide to financial management, including advice and resources, free of charge to not-for-profit organisations working in the relief and development sectors.

Mango does not claim that the Guide and resources will solve all accounts problems for all relief and development NGOs. But Mango believes that they provide useful building blocks that staff and trustees can adapt and use to meet their own needs.

Mango continually develops its materials and welcomes feedback on their use. If you have adapted or improved some parts of Mango’s materials then we would like to hear about it.
