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
I am a new Executive Director to a NPO that needs some support in becoming fiscally responsible. I would like support and training in how to understand our budget better, as well as create a budget for FY 2022-2023 that is more fiscally sustainable than our current budget.
What We Have In Place
- We currently have past two years' 990s and budgets for you to review, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the ED and Operations Manager on board and ready to learn, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,114 , allowing us to not have to rely so heavily on fundraising every year to be able to even pay our staff.
Our organization has been around for 37 years but has been run by therapists, and a few years ago we were in jeopardy of not being able to make ends meet. We have come through that, but we are still operating at a huge deficit every year ($70-80,000) that we have to fundraise for. This is not sustainable and we are looking at ways to understand our budget better first of all, and will then take that information to strategic planning and goal setting for the next 2-5 years.
