Banking / Funding

Creating an annual budget (here is a PDF sample) is one of the first, most important steps in planning for your group’s events and activities. Almost every funding source requires a budget when you request funds. Budgeting can help your group better plan events and avoid financial surprises. Make your budget early, and update it often. For complete instructions, see Financial Planning.
