If you’ve ever had to create a budget for your grant proposal, and panicked—the team at Elevate knows how you feel.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a grant RFP that doesn’t ask you to submit a budget of some kind—be it an organizational budget, a grant budget, or a program budget. These documents can be overwhelming to create, especially when you aren’t sure which information to include or how much detail to provide.

Enter: Budget Week! In this 3-part series from October 29-31, we’ll answer all your questions about the different budget types you’re bound to encounter in your grantwriting career. Save your seat!

Attn: Nonprofits Using Online Learning

Do you use learning as part of your program delivery? Many nonprofits are digitally transforming their learning to the online environment to scale impact and mission, and to take advantage of the best parts of what the Internet has to offer.

Take a look at this white paper: The Challenge of Scaling Learning as Part of a Nonprofit Program.

If your nonprofit organization is using online learning we should talk. Extension Engine helps nonprofits—Youth Entrepreneurs, Year Up, New Teacher Center, Bridgespan—build online learning programs.

by Ted Hart

Fifteen years have passed since the world became virtually borderless. Tools like Skype, Facebook, and Twitter have enabled us to be more connected than ever before. Friends and families can now keep in touch even when oceans apart, news can be shared in real time, and action can be immediate. Yet a growing number of studies are warning us that our seemingly vibrant virtual social networks are a trap leading to acute loneliness. Why are we talking about the possible negative impacts that social media has on our happiness? Well, a recent study proposed a new strategy for tackling the loneliness epidemic: less focus on self.

LIVE Workshop: Downloading Transactions from Your Bank into QuickBooks (NEW)

Tuesday, October 15 and Wednesday, October 16, 2019

When it comes to streamlining your accounting process, utilizing the download feature in QuickBooks is a huge game changer and will literally cut the time you spend dealing with your books in half. We are very excited to have Gregg Bossen, a CPA specializing in nonprofits and president of QuickBooks Made Easy for Nonprofits, present this one of a kind and highly requested webinar. In this session, Gregg will cover how to connect your bank and credit card accounts to your QuickBooks; downloading of transactions for free; pointing downloaded transactions to accounts, programs, and grants; creating “rules” in QuickBooks so that the downloaded transactions are preassigned to the correct categories; matching downloaded transactions that have already been entered manually to avoid double entry; and matching downloaded deposits (bank accounts only) to existing items in QuickBooks. There will also be time for your questions. There are separate webinars for people who use the desktop version and the online version of QuickBooks.
