Nonprofit Budgeting Part 2: Building Better Budgets
As our organizations evolve many of us are searching for budgeting tools and approaches that are more adaptive than predictive, and that position us for more inclusive decision making and longer-term planning for organizational health and sustainability.
This workshop is designed for people who are leading organizational budgeting efforts, and are often responsible for designing both the tool and the process. Ideal participants will be actively looking to revamp a budgeting process and/or tool that has grown stagnant or no longer serves the needs of the organization. We will deconstruct the traditional methods and tools of budgeting and explore new possibilities for managing our resources in ways that are deeply aligned with our values and impact.
By the end of this workshop you will:
- Be inspired to develop impactful budgeting process, tools, and reporting;
- Increase your skill in communicating about the budget in order to build a culture of learning and shared leadership throughout the organization;
- Use the budget to spark new thinking for powerful conversations with funders and donors;
- Explore new ways of thinking about nonprofit budgeting and resource management.
Note: this workshop assumes that participants have knowledge of basic budgeting terminology and practices, which are covered in “Nonprofit Budgeting Part 1: Budget Basics” If you have questions whether this workshop is appropriate to meet your needs please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
