David Orlinoff


Effective budgeting is essential to the success of any nonprofit organization, and there are several crucial steps in developing an accurate and usable plan. At this seminar we will discuss some of the best practices in budgeting and some of the worst mistakes often made, and how you can implement the former and avoid the latter. The first portion of the seminar will focus on the organization’s annual operating plan, which combines forecasts for each significant revenue and expense item over the course of the upcoming fiscal year.
