Nonprofit Budgeting Part 1: Budget Basics

Host Organization: CompassPoint


Many of us are initially drawn to work in nonprofits because of a commitment to the causes our organizations work toward. At some point we may find ourselves responsible for helping to develop and manage the financial resources of the organization, with little experience with the tools and language of finance.

This workshop is designed for people who are new to budgeting and want to get a baseline understanding of the components of a nonprofit budget. We will demystify some of the terminology around budgeting, share examples of different types of budgets and when they are useful, and practice reading and interpreting both organizational and program-level budget-to-actual reports.
