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 current financial statements, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have operating budget, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $14,474 , allowing us to further invest in the social and emotional support of our youth. As needed monetary support for youth outside of programs.

Our organization is continuing to transition from a grassroots. We are currently in a reorganization process for the remainder of this year. We need to create the financial infrastructure and strategy into our development and growth plans. Our team and board are open to learning best practices and learning how to make long term financial plans
