Introduction to Project Budgets
Are you ready to start fundraising for your project or idea, but don’t know what and how much to ask for? If preparing a budget for your foundation grant is holding you back, come learn the basic elements of how to draft a project budget with confidence.
This class will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to generate a standard project budget for a foundation proposal. We will discuss:
- The basic components of a project budget including income and expenses
- How to estimate the realistic cost of a project
- What other financial documents you may also need to submit with your proposal
Classroom attendees: Get started on your own project budget! Join us for an optional 30-minute exercise after class.
Prior attendance to Introduction to Proposal Writing is strongly recommended.
A version of this course is also offered in Spanish.
