Do you find the budgeting process confusing? 

If you’re like many nonprofits, you may not be aware of the various budgeting methodologies you could employ. Or perhaps you struggle with understanding the difference between budgeting and forecasting and the goal for each. 

If the mere thought of budgeting makes you feel overwhelmed and you do not know where to start, then join Don Needs and Boyd Orr of Jitasa as they cover how you can start your budget or improve your current processes.

You’ll learn:

  • a step by step process to building your budget for success;
  • the different types of budgeting methodologies, so you can identify which will be the most effective for your organization; 
  • the key areas of risk you need to be aware of during the budgeting process;
  • how to break down your budget into actionable goals; 
  • why your organization needs to use both budgeting and forecasting (and the key differences); and,
  • how to automate both the budgeting and forecasting cycle to provide rapid decision-making capability for your organization.

Most importantly, you will learn how the right approach to budgeting and forecasting can improve the effectiveness and efficiency of your organization. 

This webinar is perfect for you if you’re a director, board member, or nonprofit staff member who wants to understand the best practices and methodologies you can use to ensure your budget is a valuable tool that guides your organization to success.
