The event took place at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC and featured keynote speaker, Rob Scheer who shared his story of how he founded Comfort Cases, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of foster-care children in the Washington DC area – an issue Mr. Scheer feels personally connected to as a former foster teen himself.

About the Event:
The nonprofit CFO role has evolved from simply a number cruncher to a big-picture thinker involved in nearly every facet of the organization including governance, performance, and strategic growth. Today, CFOs are increasingly involved in setting operational strategy and serving as a strategic leader and advisor to the CEO and board. But despite this expanding role, the contributions of the CFO are often overlooked and rarely recognized. For this reason, Tate & Tryon and West, Lane & Schlager co-founded the Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards Luncheon in an effort to:
- Highlight the critical role that CFOs play in ensuring good governance, disclosure and transparency, and a well-managed organization.
- Showcase those CFOs whose practices serve as an example of a high-quality finance function that adds value to the overall management of the organization
- Create a community that allows CFOs to learn from one another and facilitate the sharing of best practices
Since its inception, this award program has honored the achievements of more than 30 chief financial officers of leading nonprofit organizations around the country. For additional information about this awards program and previous honorees, visit www.nonprofitCFOaward.com.
