Learn about budgeting for grants.

Grant budgeting is challenging, boring and complicated, yet it’s an essential part of planning how you will spend the funder’s money. Most of us weren’t born knowing how to intuitively manage a grant or its budget, but here’s the good news – grant budgeting is a skill set that anyone can learn and we can teach you!

In the Grant Budgeting workshop, you will learn:

· What a Grant Budget is

· What to include in a GB

· Expenses vs Income

· What is an In-kind expense

· Direct vs In-direct costs

· How to calculate fringe benefits

· Sample grant budget

· Practical tips

· Q&A
