Budgeting and Planning
Not all budgeting is created equally. For nonprofits especially, it can be difficult to project uncertain revenue streams and to fully capture the full costs of running programs.
I help nonprofits to break their budgets out by programs, to effectively project revenue, and to split shared expenses across their grants and programs. That's just the beginning. With accurate budgeting, we can use budget to actual reports to track fundraising and spending, run scenario budgets for uncertain futures, and have confidence in the organizations's future.
Aspects of Budgeting and Planning
Planning and Stress Relief
I've helped dozens of organizations create their annual budget and implement it throughout the year so they can track their actual activity to their planned activity. This process of planning and having confidence in the plan relieves stress.
Building an Operating Reserve
Budgeting starts with the operating reserve. Does your organization have an operating reserve of 3-6 months. Do you know what this is? If not, then I can help you create a plan to achieve it. The budgeting process has a strategy with a beginning and an end.
