BETTER BUDGETING FOR NONPROFITS

“We certainly consider budgeting a mission critical activity…although we’re a nonprofit, and we’re not so concerned with the bottom line, we are very concerned with long-term viability.” 

Jon Ter Louw, Financial Analyst, Georgia Municipal Association 

Your mission matters. 

NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS enrich our lives in innumerous ways – addressing social problems and community needs while creating an opportunity for service, volunteerism, and philanthropy. 

Money matters too.

IN TODAY'S TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES, the path to sustainability is not an easy one. Mission-driven nonprofits like yours face unique challenges when balancing the vision with the need for financial stability. Now is the time to build a better budget. 

Put your budgetary process to the test. 

Ask these important questions to gauge the efficacy of your current financial planning system: 

  • Are your non-financial employees and volunteers struggling with Excel-based templates? 
  • Is it difficult to track everyone’s progress? 
  • Is your system error prone and time consuming?
  • Do you have a hard time maintaining historical data after staff or volunteer turnover?
  • Is it challenging to evaluate and revise budgets throughout the year? 
  • Do you and your board members have limited transparency into the rationale behind the numbers? 
  • Are you struggling with employees’ lack of budgetary engagement, accountability, and ownership
  • Have you experienced difficulty tying the strategy to the budget?

Your budget should support your mission. BudgetPak is here to help.
