Event Description

Building Effective Budgets for Your Nonprofit Organization

Todd Kimball, Partner, CFO Selections 

Even in the best of times, developing an organizational budget is an important component of financial management.  In times of uncertainty, periods of contraction or periods of expansion, a well-crafted budget can make all the difference between surviving or thriving.  A budget is often a guide to help nonprofits plan for the future or evaluate its financial health.  In this webinar we will explore specific budget building methodologies that work the best and how to achieve a collaborative, well-conceived, and impactful tool for the organization. This will be especially timely for organizations who have a June 30 FYE.

Participants will be able to: 

  • Better understand the framework for a collaborative, successful budget process 
  • Identify the differences, pros and cons of various budget methodologies 
  • Recognize the different nonprofit budget approaches, and when to use each – Grant based vs. Program based vs. Revenue based. 

Please note that a recording of this webinar will be sent to registrants after the event.
