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

We currently have a budget and are about to create a new one for next fiscal year (fiscal year starts July 1). I would like to find ways to make the budget process easier and more reliable. I am taking over the lead on the budget for the 1st time this year.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have this years budget which goes thru 6/30 along with forecast, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a team who works together to determine budget amounts, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,114 , allowing us to grow the three programs that we currently have and serve more children with free music program.

It is very important, especially during pandemic, that we have the money to continue our program and hopefully not just.get by but continue to grow and serve more children.
