Project Details

What We Need
  • A detailed Operating Budget covering at least one full fiscal year
  • Expert advice on how to reconcile actual expenses with budgeted expenses
Additional Details

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.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Quickbooks Online, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have Last year's FY Budget to Actuals, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,114 , allowing us to get the back of our house in order so we can focus on creating programs that serve our community.

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).
