Grant Writing 103: Developing Your Organization & Program Budget

May 2, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

No grant application is complete without budgets and financial information, and for many organizations, this is a challenging process. If you want to learn the basics of assembling your organization/program budgets and financial documents to include with your grant application, then this course is for you. In this workshop, you will:

Learn basic accounting principles and practices.
Gauge the Do’s and Dont’s of nonprofit budgeting and financial reporting.
Receive expert knowledge and advice from an experienced CPA on how to build your budgets and prepare your financial documents
Practice writing organization and program budgets.

This is the third in a four part series on Grant Writing. You can choose to attend one or pre-purchase tickets for all four.
