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
What We Have In Place
  • Currently need help with establishing a full budget for my organization. Need help doing programing budget, overhead costs, and other indirect and direct expenses. Looking to create a budget project for the next 5 years.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,114 , allowing us to to build out the work we are trying to do with communities. It would also allow us to build out full programing that's effective.

This is important because I have several funders that would like to fund my organization and I need to have a detailed and easy to read budget. Also because this will help us know where we need to raise funds for, where we are spending to much at. We also need to look at what would be need for each program and look at what we already have, and what we need to bring in. Lastly it shows that we know how to effectively budget money.
