Annual Budget and Operations Preparation and Planning

From United Way of NNY:


A good budgeting process engages everyone who is responsible for implementing its priorities. It can get complicated as budget development and decision-making are driven by mission, financial need, opportunities and the Board’s fiduciary responsibilities for monitoring and oversight. The process should include enough time for review of strategic priorities and allow for review, feedback, and revisions.

Once a budget is in place – how do you manage this “living, breathing” document? As we have learned over this past year, things can change and having a good budget as a foundation can assist us with both navigation in the current period and adaptation for future sustainability.

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • The 6 P’s of budgeting
  • Knowing ourselves – the sources of our revenue
  • Mapping our year – the good, the bad and the ugly
  • Thinking strategically-the impact of current decisions on future periods
