Budgeting 101 for Non-Profits

October 11, 2023
09:00 AM to 12:00 PM

This workshop will provide a solid understanding of how to create and monitor a budget for your non-profit organization!

One way that a non-profit can plan for income and expenses in the future is by creating a budget. A budget is a document that can help any non-profit organization plan for the future as well as assess its current financial health. The budget is typically reviewed periodically to compare it to the actual cash flow of the organization and to guide program and service delivery throughout the year. Knowing the budget, understanding its function, and when to make any adjustments, is fundamental to any organization's financial management practices.

In this workshop, participants will learn the budget development cycle, revenue and cost projection best practices, how to account for restricted funds, and strategies to deal with variances.

Who should attend?

This workshop is recommended for all non-profit staff or volunteers who are responsible for developing and maintaining a budget for their program, project or the organization.
