Budgeting can be more than just an annual exercise of putting numbers in columns. It has the potential to establish benchmarks, measure the organization's financial health from one year to the next, and determine priorities. It is intended to be a planning tool that reflects a not-for-profit organization's programs, mission and strategic plan.
This CPE course, part of the Not-for-Profit Certificate Program II, offers you detail-rich examples and a case study that will help you turn budgeting into a positive planning process that can help your not-for-profit achieve its strategic goals and increase accountability in the budgeting process.
Included in the course resources is a downloadable budget worksheet template in Microsoft Excel, which you can customize for your organization.
This CPE course is included in the 28-hour Not-for-Profit Certificate II. It can also be purchased individually or as a part of the Not-for-Profit Governance track.
