• Budget Template for NGOs

    Author: Category: MS Excel Templates

    Preparing budgets is always a critical process no matter what kind of organization you run or work for. It requires careful assessment of organization’s revenue and routine expenses to calculate overall profit or net income.  The job of preparing budget turned to be more difficult when it is for a NGO (Non Profit Organization). Non Profit Organizations don’t operate for the sake of profit or money making as their core objectives. Moreover, they don’t have traditional revenue sources such as sales of products etc. Hence a Budget Document for NGO is obviously a different one as compared to routine budgets prepared for business organizations. Allow me to share with you a comprehensive and good looking Budget Template well-suited for NGOs to get started preparing their own budgets with very less modifications. This Excel Template allows you to not only specify your income/donations amount as well as expenses but also to compare it with previous year’s data. You can also have a very quick comparison of Proposed Vs. Actual facts & figures. A simple yet very informative chart allows reader to have a quick overview of whats the summary without going into details of each and every entry.
