About the Workshop:
How do you budget money you don't have yet? 
Having a clear and realistic budget is essential to any grant application. Funders scrutinize budgets if they are interested in funding your proposal, so having a specific, realistic, and strong submission which can withstand a critical eye is important.  In this workshop, you will learn how to use a checklist to ensure you are building a realistic budget which allows your organization to do an effective job.
Join us for a workshop that will provide you with the basics of grant proposal budgeting!
