Meeting - BudgetingAccurate budgeting and forecasting are critical to any organization, but for non-profits that depend on donated dollars and often run on lean budgets, this exercise can be even more challenging. It’s a mistake to go by last year’s budget alone; with the data you already possess, you have what you need at your fingertips to create accurate forecasts and budgets, even in the most tumultuous of times.

In part 3 of this 5-part webinar series for non-profits, you’ll learn how to put what you’ve accomplished using analytics to plan your fundraising and engagement activities to work in your budgeting and forecasting efforts. You’ll see how to get more precise results with tangible, year-over-year marketing spend, donation, and recruitment and retention data to populate your budgeting models—all in a way that protects your sensitive data.
