I would like to create a budget for the upcoming FY, which begins March 1 We have just converted to Quickbooks Online, and are in the process of streamlining our chart of accounts.
We have struggled with getting solid financial advice, and have never had anyone on the board with financial expertise. We are starting to bring in more grant and sponsorship funding, and want to be able to effectively plan for growth, convey fundraising goals to the board, and get our systems streamlined so we're effective in the use of our time (1 part-time ED who does everything at this point).
To improve the health and wellbeing of childbearing families through fitness, education, social support, and community engagement.
Our longterm goal is to establish a perinatal resource center providing fitness, education, and social support programming for pregnant and postpartum people and the professionals who serve this audience.
We currently work to connect pregnant and postpartum people to the resources they need to help them thrive through our annual Nurture RVA Birth & Baby Fair, and provide training in critical topics for perinatal health care and social service providers. We also work collaboratively with other organizations to promote policy, infrastructure, and environmental changes that foster a breastfeeding friendly community.
