A well-crafted budget reveals an organization’s spending priorities and its financial health. A strong budget and financial narrative also can help a program officer advocate for your project before foundation trustees and other decision makers.
Learn what grant makers look for in a proposal budget and which pitfalls to avoid. This session will explain how to link your organization’s spending to its tactics and overall goals to instill confidence in grant makers.
Join us to hear directly from program officers how to craft a sound project budget for your next proposal.
What will you learn?
- How to ensure your numbers match your narrative
- Why – and how – you should address any financial weaknesses or gaps
- The value of showing your past growth as well as your budget projections
