Upcoming Seminars:

How to Make an Operating Budget - Budgeting for Everyone 
Session 1: Tuesday, June 24, Session 2: Tuesday, July 8 from 9:00am-11:00am

Very few people go into non-profit work because they want to create budgets, but your organization's success and sustainability requires that your organization have  a solid budget each year that accurately reflects your goals and programs.

The truth is that you don't need to be a math whiz or an accountant to make a good budget. There is no mystery, it is not hard, it is simple and logical and budgeting is a great skill for you to add to your personal toolbox. In session 1 of this hands-on workshop you will learn:

  • What a budget is and what it is not
  • The vocabulary of budgeting
  • The time period that a budget covers
  • What goes into a budget
  • Ways to estimate revenue and expenses
  • You will create a simple budget right there in the workshop

Session 2 of the workshop: There is homework! Attendees will be asked to create a budget and then we will re-convene to talk about the task, the experience and to answer any questions.

Presenter: Jude Goldman, the LZF's ED is an unrepentant English major who is afraid of math and flunked Algebra 2 in high school. She overcame these obstacles to become the general manager of a large publishing company where she was responsible for multi-million dollar budgets and successfully taught these skills to art directors, editors and others who never, in their wildest dreams, thought that they could possibly learn to create a budget.
