Impact statement
This project will save us $14,474 , allowing us to bring 25 students 10 weeks of coding education.

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)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have reconciled all of our 2018 statements, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have our 2019 budget and 2017 audit, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

NYOT is at a critical point in its growth where we need to be able to develop strong forecasts for the organization over 3-5 years. We're hoping this project will allow us to work with someone to development a template that will be used as a main source for forecasting and planning.
