Do you project grant revenue for your organization? Is your organization’s budgeting process for grant programs effective?
Making informed predictions about your annual grant revenue can help your organization make smarter decisions.
It will help you manage expectations with leadership and your board, allow you to create more realistic program budgets, and reduce uncertainty in your annual budget planning.
Unfortunately, many nonprofit professionals struggle when trying to project future grant revenue. It can feel complicated to make sense of financial data when you aren’t an expert in revenue forecasting, which results in feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.
During this webinar, Courtney Moran, Senior Director at Elevate, will show you how to create revenue forecasts for your grant programs step-by-step so your team can make more informed decisions. You’ll get access to a template you can put to use right away and learn the key considerations you should keep in mind.
- what projections and revenue forecasting is, and why it's done;
- how often you should update your projections;
- a process to create revenue forecasts; and,
- how projections can help your organization plan for expansion or capital needs, or just build rainy day funds.
You’ll walk away with an understanding of what revenue forecasting is and why it’s a vital process for grantseekers so you can lead the process internally with your grants and finance teams.
And even if you’re not a “finance person,” you’ll see that anyone involved in a grants program can benefit by creating projections and forecasts which track progress toward financial goals.
This webinar is perfect for any nonprofit professional involved in the grantseeking and budgeting process. Executive directors and finance professionals should have control over the budgeting and forecasting process, while development professionals and program staff need to provide input on program needs and funder projections.
Full participation in Projections and Forecasting for Grantseekers is applicable for 1.5 points in Category 1.B -Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.
