Budget Fluency: How to Manage Your Community’s $$$

Join this 60-min webinar to learn about all things budgeting!

One of the keys to your community’s success is smooth, transparent, fiscally responsible budgeting. But it can be tricky to create a budget within a non-capitalist ownership structure, such as a non-profit, co-op, or intentional community.

This session is designed to help you ⁠— as well as your group, donors, staff, and/or board members ⁠—understand the impact of budgets on your community. You’ll also learn about the powers and limitations of various roles in creating a budget that includes multiple stakeholders.

During this session you will learn:

  • The basics of how to read a budget
  • Various roles in the budgeting process, especially the Board
  • How to talk about the budget with your community’s constituents
  • How to make the budgeting process smooth and transparent
