Proposal Budgeting Basics

Washington, DC

Are you stymied by this essential component of any grant proposal?
Are you wondering if you need a financial expert to create a budget for you?


This free training session geared to the novice grantseeker will cover such topics as:

  • What kinds of expenses are covered under "personnel"?
  • What level of detail do you need to include for non-personnel expenses?
  • How do you determine an overall amount that is neither too high nor too low in relation to what you expect to accomplish?
  • What is the relationship between the budget for your project and the overall budget for your nonprofit organization?
  • What kinds of expenses should be included on the "overhead" line?

Proposal Budgeting Basics will answer these and related questions.

Prior attendance at Proposal Writing Basics is strongly recommended.
