In this workshop, Program Officers will discuss how key drivers of an organization’s business model are used to develop long-term financial plans. Budgets and long-range plans can provide a benchmark against which progress toward strategic goals can be monitored and measured.

This session will include the following:

  • Understanding and managing financial risk
  • Multi-year financial planning to support sustainability and growth
  • Financial modeling and forecasting practices
  • What comes first: expansion of programmatic activities or building supporting infrastructure?
