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

Over the years, we have not had a solid operational budget and have just relied on program budget but are now in the space where we are receiving significant increases in funding and we want to have an operational budget that aligns with our fundraising plan.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have 2 years of program budgets and up to date accounting, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a proposed operation budget, a fund development plan, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,114 , allowing us to allocate those dollars toward program related costs which improves our overall impact with our students and families.

When completing grant applications, my biggest concern is always our budget and not being able to feel confident in what we submit, which decreases the likelihood that we will receive the funding. This is our last hurdle towards total confidence in our fund development process.
