Have you ever had a great idea for a program, written a beautiful grant proposal narrative, and yet not received a grant because your proposed budget wasn’t up to par?

Does your budget align with your organization’s mission? How does it align with the funder's mission?

Creating a budget isn’t just about putting numbers on paper. It’s an indicator of how you will support and fulfill your mission. A proposed budget is not only an essential part of a well written grant -- it also communicates to other donors and volunteers the sustainability of your organization.

In this interactive session, we will discuss grant budgeting best practices that help you win more grants.
