23 May | 9:30 am 12:30 pm

Budgeting for sustainability in small charities can be challenging. Our business models and the operating environment often makes this difficult. However, there are things we can do to help us build our financial sustainability.

In this session we will revisit good budgeting principles, explore ways to build sustainability and talk together about the very real challenge of having to do more with less.

We will look at:

Understand the benefits of budgeting
Know how to prepare a simple multi project organisational budget
Understand how budgeting can contribute to sustainability
Understand the limitations of full cost recovery and budgeting when building sustainability

What you can expect:

Some slides and Q and A
A practical budget building workshop
Group discussion
Please come prepared to share and learn together
The session is led by Liz Pepler, Director at Embrace Finance, an experienced charity finance professional with over 20 years’ experience in the sector.
