Helping NGOs do more with their money

Mango's Health check

Mango's financial management Health check will help you see how healthy the financial management is in your NGO. It is available here for free download.

The Health check is specifically designed for small and medium sized NGOs as a self assessment tool so that you can identify the areas where you need to improve.

The Health check can be run by any member of staff or a trustee. You do not need specialist financial skills to complete it. It includes explanations of each section and a glossary of the financial terms used.

By the end of the Health check you will be able to tell if the financial management in your NGO is healthy or sick – and whether you need to call a doctor!

The fully revised and updated version 3 (pdf) is currently available in four languages; translated versions will be added as soon as available.  The previous version is still available here in six languages.

Version 3 is also available in an Excel format in English; translated versions to follow.
