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 Quickbooks Online, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have GoogleDrive, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $14,474 , allowing us to hire additional support staff and have extra funding in preparation for our return to live theatre.

We are committed to creating financial sustainability for the organization, and particularly developing a strategic financial plan for organizational growth.
