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

I'm not in charge of the org's budget but I'm asked to come up with a budget for my department for the fiscal year that will be incorporated into the org's budget. I feel I need a better understanding of the process to provide a more complete final product for the accounting team.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have last year's development budget, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have access to past financial information for the org, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,114 , allowing us to funnel back into our general operations so we can serve more youth, young adults and their families.

Having a better grasp of how to estimate into the future will help our org better target for the new year.
