An effective project budget raises funds where needed, supports financial sustainability and organizational integrity, and provides a benchmark against which performance can be measured and reported. You will learn the role fundraising, program, and finance each play in creating the project budget to achieve these objectives. You will also learn what can happen when these functions don’t play their expected role and how consequences of the resulting lack of coordinated project development can cascade throughout the organization.
Outcomes: This webinar is designed to help you avoid:
- allocating the wrong indirect costs to your project
- double dipping
- budgeting too little money for your project
- requesting money for the wrong project
- creating a project budget that cannot be compared with actual expenses
- Executive Directors
- Development Directors and Officers
- Program Directors and Officers
