hopesconferencePeriodically, we would like to introduce the students involved with HOPES and ask them questions regarding the conference. This is Cameron Buswell, an accounting major and ASUO Controller helping with finances, talking about why finances are important to NGOs and sustainable design.
“In general, I think finance gets a bad rap. Accountants are often overlooked and underappreciated. When people think of finance, banking, and accounting, they think of classic capitalism, where people are just trying to make money and not a positive impact. In reality, every organization needs money to accomplish their goals and the art of finance is about obtaining that money. They need access to capital, to make smart loans, and to find grants from the government. Designers and innovators need to focus their energy on generating groundbreaking ideas not writing purchase orders and balancing the checkbook, that’s where accountants come in.”
