OD: UPMIFA and Endowment Reporting

Recorded March 21, 2008


The new UPMIFA environment has led to proposed endowment disclosures by FASB.  The guidance in proposed FASB Staff Position (FSP) FAS 117-a will augment the landmark FASB Statement No. 117, Financial Statements of Not-for-Profit Organizations. UPMIFA interpretation in your state and/or by your governing board can potentially alter the net asset classification of true endowments. This conceptual change and new disclosures will be effective in this fiscal year’s financial statements. The webcast is your opportunity to understand the paper directly from the source – the FASB staff.  The FSP is a proposal that carries a 60 day comment; participation in this program will allow for debate and questions that inform institutions’ and NACUBO’s response to FASB.
