Training Overview

4 Budget Blunders And Practical Steps To Avoid Them - Learn how to avert a financial fiasco for your nonprofit.

As the last quarter of the year approaches, nonprofits are entering the budget season and planning financial forecasts for 2022. Developing budgets and monitoring spending is an inevitable and unrelenting part of the duties of nonprofit leaders of all levels. You need to get started now to avoid problems before next year begins.

While it is tempting to simply adopt last year’s budget and leave tracking to the finance folks, a strategically managed budget is a critical component of every well-led department or program. Solid budget management becomes even more crucial when funding shifts and needs change, which is an almost daily occurrence during the COVID-19 pandemic.
