NJAIS Webinar: Navigating the COVID-19 Independent School Financial Crisis

April 1, 2020 | 3:30 PM ET Speakers: Ari Betof and Kelsey Vrooman

For Heads of School and CFOs of independent schools in New Jersey: Register here

Independent schools must quickly prepare for the unprecedented financial sustainability challenges the COVID-19 global pandemic poses. Ongoing expense obligations coupled with potential declines in net tuition revenue, philanthropy, and auxiliary income risk creating a multi-stage crisis that will challenge all independent schools and may push schools in weaker positions past the point of viability.

NJAIS invites heads of school, CFOs, and business officers to join Ari Betof and Kelsey Vrooman as they model the combination of financial factors already impacting independent schools and those likely to arise in the weeks ahead. Using example schools with differing levels of financial health, this webinar will drive home the importance of mission-driven, data-informed decision making in response to financial challenges and offer strategies for school leaders in uncertain times.
