Where do operating reserves for nonprofits come from?

  • Operating reserves are important for nonprofit organizations because they can help cover unexpected costs.
  • A reserve is a fund that an organization sets aside to meet future needs or emergencies, such as the need to purchase new equipment or pay for a major repair.
  • Reserves are often used to cover unexpected costs, such as when the roof needs replacing and there is no money left in the budget to do it.
  • Reserves should be held in a separate account, such as an endowment fund or special restricted funds. The reserve cannot be used for day-to-day expenses. This is to ensure that the money is available when it is really needed.
