Not-for-profit organizations (NFPs) prepare financial statements to report critical information about programs and operations to a diverse group of stakeholders. Users of an NFP's financial statements include donors, grantors, creditors, program beneficiaries, and others who have a need to assess the financial health of the NFP. In this CPE course, you will work through several examples to understand the basic reporting requirements, note disclosures and presentation formats that are available to NFPs.

This is utterly irrelevant to me. I work for a small charity under UK law and prepare accounts according to the Charity SORP (FRS102). Why would I waste my time studying something that I will never use?
