See What Others Are Saying:

"Having worked with budgets for large and small non-profits, I wish I had these insights earlier in my career. And I took away new things on how to approach budgeting and the process to make it effective and smooth. Thank you."

"Inheriting a non-profit as the new director and seeing so many bad habits - it was great to have confirmation on the budget process and ways that I can improve the experience through the narrative and other Excel workbook changes. Brilliant!"

"Key Takeaway - Currently, show three-year trend for the finance committee for comparison - but wow! I learned so much. Goals - there has never been a budget narrative - loved that and will be so helpful. Also loved added a column for variance from last year's budget to this year's budget proposal."

-Andrew L.

"I was able to learn to add more people in our budgets to get better working budgets and budgets that make sense."
