Guide to Financial Management

Using the Guide

Welcome to Mango's Guide to Financial Management. We do hope you will enjoy using it and we welcome all feedback, suggestions and comments.

Please spread the word about the Guide so that Mango's work and our supporters' investment have maximum impact. 

To get the best out of it, make sure you read the section here called How to use the Guide.

The legal bit!

We make the Guide available free of charge so that it is used as widely as possible.  This helps us to achieve our mission to strengthen the financial management and accountability of development and humanitarian organisations.  The usage policy covers some good practice guidance and explains how the Guide may be used.

The Third party policy explains the use of external links and declares any conflicts of interest.


The Guide is enabled with Macmillan's online dictionary - just click on any word and a definition will magically appear!  There is also a Glossary of financial management terms which appears on the right side of each page, just click on the orange question-mark icon below the Navigator.


We would love to hear from you if you have any feedback or suggestions on what else to include in the Guide. Please share experiences and good practice by submitting a case study or example document on our Mango community pages. 

You may also contact us by email.

Please support us!

If you find the Guide useful or if you think other NGOs might, then please consider making a donation to Mango. We rely on the generosity of individual donors to continue our work and make the Guide available for free. 

Giving on-line is safe and easy using our secure service-provider. Donate here.
