It's About Time

by Ellen Mowrer

According to the results of GrantStation's State of Grantseeking Survey, a lack of time and staff is the greatest obstacle to successful grantseeking (even in these pandemic times). There have been full books written about how to get organized and better utilize your time; I'm sure that they are worth reading, if only one had the time to do so. I have three general time-management tips that work for me; your mileage may vary.

Forecasting Revenue and Annual Projections

Thursday, November 12, 2020

If you are the leader of a nonprofit organization, you have almost certainly been asked to predict the future revenue and expenses during the annual budget season. And if you've ever been in a cash crunch, you may have wished you'd planned a little more rigorously earlier in the year. At Elevate, we know this task can feel challenging at best, and near-impossible at worst—which is why we want to share our secrets behind the same forecasting and projection process we use to produce forecasting charts for our nonprofit clients. In this webinar, presented by Alayna Buckner, we'll cover why forecasting is important, how often to go through the forecasting process, and how to create your own forecasting or projections chart for your organization. This training is ideal for development managers, directors of development, leaders of small nonprofit organizations, and other nonprofit and fundraising professionals who want a better understanding of the budgeting and forecasting process. It is also helpful for grantwriters looking to deepen their understanding of nonprofit budgets and finance practice.
