About This Course:
Indirect cost allocation can be confusing, but understanding how to allocate these costs is crucial in order for an organization to accurately capture and recover cost incurred.

Overhead and G&A are part of the cost of doing business and nonprofits need to know how to present their programs in a way that represents the true picture of what goes into conducting the program.

How to identify indirect costs and methods and cost drivers for allocating an indirect cost pool across programs is discussed, as well as joint cost and how it can help you present your fundraising costs more accurately as well as what you need to do in order to have costs that qualify for this allocation.

Review the complex world of negotiated indirect cost rate agreements. Review the guidelines for what's unallowable and how that gets treated and then finally how an organization applies for an indirect rate.
