Straight to the Point: Budgeting Basics
This Straight to the Point capacity building tool introduces the concept of budgeting to community-based organizations with limited resources and financial management experience, and leads them through the process of creating a simple budget. Taking into consideration implementers’ limited time and human and financial resources, the tools in Pathfinder’s Straight to the Point Series provide clear, concise guidance on a variety of issues related to organizational management and program design, implementation, and assessment. The Straight to the Point tools do not replace extensive, in-depth evaluations and guidance, but rather offer an easier, more direct way of improving programs and launching new activities.
