Impact statement
This project will save us $14,474 , allowing us to continue helping poor and displaced young adults in Marin County.

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 a staff of four people who you can reach out to, including one employee working exclusively with Catchafire volunteers, which should help answer any of your questions.

    We currently have an operating budget that you will be able to access.
How This Will Help

Organizing our finances will help us to be more transparent to our donors and stretch our money farther to help more young adults.
