In Person: Fundamentals of Budgeting


  • September 14, 2022
  • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Budgets are the foundation of nonprofit finance and are vital to your organization’s strategic planning and management. Budgeting can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Learn to use budgeting as another tool for you to tell the story of your organization’s plans, priorities, and aspirations. Propel’s 10-step budgeting process will also highlight ways to engage your board as well as staff across the organization.

This training will be held in person. Masks and proof of vaccination are required to participate. If you are unable to mask or be vaccinated, we encourage you to look into our virtual offerings of this training. You can read more about our COVID protocols here.

If there is a need, based on CDC community levels, to transition a training from in-person to virtual, Propel will make that determination as early as possible, but in the case of a rapidly changing environment, could be made as late as 24 hours before the training.
