Project details

What we need
  • An Excel spreadsheet custom-built specifically for the Organization's finances
  • Training on how to use the spreadsheet to understand the current financial situation and predict future states (e.g., plan for budget increases or decreases, hiring, and other key drivers)
Additional details

We need your help, we are venturing into social enterprises via housing development. In order to predict our and our investors returns on any given project we need a pro forma template. The template needs to be built to include soft and hard costs of construction, rental income, possible unit sales, taxes, asset value +/-, possible retail income.

What we have in place
  • We currently have assumptions, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have business plan draft, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $14,474 , allowing us to buy raw materials equal to what's needed to built a studio apartment

The ability to bring in investors for non profit oriented affordable housing construction is key to successfully pursuing our mission.
